Chelsea considering summer move for attacker with 17 goal contributions this season | CaughtOffside

Chelsea are weighing up a summer move for the AC Milan attacker Rafael Leao.

The 24-year-old is regarded as one of the finest attacking talents in European football right now and the Portuguese international has nine goals and eight assists across all competitions this season.

It is no secret that Chelsea are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements. Signing a quality wide forward would be a wise decision for them. Leao is capable of operating in wide areas as well as a centre forward. He could prove to be a quality acquisition.

A report from Fichajes claims that Paris Saint-Germain were keen on signing the AC Milan forward as well, but they have turned their attention elsewhere. The development will come as a major boost for Chelsea who will feel that they have a good chance of signing the player now.

However, it is fair to assume that the Blues will have a major disadvantage when it comes to signing the player. They are unlikely to secure Champions League qualification for the next season and therefore attracting top talent will be difficult for them.

Leao might want to join a club capable of winning major trophies and although Chelsea are one of the biggest clubs in the world, they are going through a rough patch right now.

Chelsea are in the midtable positions right now and it will be interesting to see if they can finish the season strongly. They will have to convince the player of their ambitions in order for the move to go through. In addition to that, Milan could demand a substantial amount of money as well.
