Chelsea’s new striker comes on an eight-year contract until 2031
CHELSEA (England) are signing a new striker. Following the completion of a personal agreement with Nicholas Jackson (22, Villarreal), the transfer fee agreement was completed with “one stroke after another.” An official announcement is expected to be made within this week as only the final contract signature remains while the medical test has already been passed.
Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, said on social media on the 25th (Korea Standard Time), “Chelsea is recruiting Jackson. “We have already reached a complete agreement, and we have completed medical tests over two days,” he said.
Chelsea focused on reinforcing strikers in this summer’s transfer window. This is because his performance was sluggish due to “empty balls” to the extent that he ranked sixth in the lowest score (38 goals) in the English Premier League last season. In addition, Romelu Lukaku (30, Inter Milan), who will return on loan, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (34), who had no presence since joining last summer, needed a new recruitment.
In the meantime, Chelsea has observed several candidates and compiled a recruitment list. Harry Kane (29, Tottenham Hotspur), who worked with new coach Mauricio Pochettino (51, Argentina), Victor Osimen (24, Napoli), who became Italy’s Serie A top scorer (26 goals) last season, and Doosan Blahovic (23, Juventus), who is considered a rising star, were mentioned.
Chelsea, however, eventually turned its eyes to other places as the transfer fees of the recruiters they considered were ridiculously expensive and needed to reinforce other positions besides strikers this summer. In fact, more than 100 million euros (about 142.6 billion won) was mentioned as the minimum transfer fee. In the meantime, it was decided to recruit Jackson, who had in mind as the “top priority” among the next best options.
According to Romano, Chelsea agreed to a transfer fee of 37 million euros (about 52.8 billion won) by paying 1 million euros (about 1.4 billion won) more than the allowed transfer amount (buy-out) in the process of recruiting Jackson. The contract period is eight years until 2031.
Following the previous recruitment of Christopher Nkunku (25), Chelsea will also join Gusto (20) in January, which confirmed the recruitment during the winter transfer market. In addition, Jackson is actively spending the transfer market this summer 파워볼추천사이트
As much as the recruitment, the release is underway. Chelsea have already sent N’Golo Kante (32, Al-Etihad) and Kalidou Koulibaly (32, Al-Hilal). In addition, he plans to part ways with Ruben Loftuschik (27), Matteo Kovacic (29), Mason Mount (24), Eduard Mendy (31), Christian Pulisic (24), and Hakim Ziyech (30)
