The recent hours witness the announcement for one of the best strikers in the world, and one of the biggest deals in the Premier League this season and to ever since a long time during a January transfer windows.
Chelsea were in the race of signing a new striker this season in the winter transfer windows, in January, and the race was for several players such as Alexis Sanchez, Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, and others from several others clubs and most of these strikers were very average for a team such as Chelsea where Antonio Conte, Chelsea’s manager, isn’t trusting and giving enough chances to the Belgian striker, Michy Batshuayi, who wasn’t able to score a lot this season and seemed he lost the confidence where Antonio Conte is preffering Alvaro Morata over the Belgian striker.
However, Alvaro Morata wasn’t able to score in the last 10 matches he played in except two goals and missed a plenty of chances especially against Arsenal in the Premier League a couple of weeks ago, which triggered the issue of signing a replacement striker as soon as possible to enhance Chelsea’s attack.
Moreover, Chelsea now lost one of their main targets this transfer windows and the most valuable and important player and one of the best in the Premier League. A few moments ago, Manchester United officially announced the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal FC which means the Blues, Chelsea, lost the race of signing the Chilean star and now they will only be able to sign an average striker.
