By Xorkpe Sosu 4 Min Read

The Blues are beginning to formalize interest in several targets, and things are really stepping up. Enzo Maresca will be eager to welcome a few more new faces to Stamford Bridge this summer.

After securing a deal for Tosin Adarabioyo, Chelsea continues to be linked with interesting players like Michael Olise and Samu Omorodion.

However, if the Blues want to spend big again this year, they may need to offload a few players. Conor Gallagher and Trevoh Chalobah face particularly uncertain futures, with any potential sale representing pure profit on the books.

Despite Chelsea’s interest and a proposed £34 million move, Atletico is eager to renew Omorodion’s contract to fend off potential suitors. Chelsea seeks to add competition for Nicolas Jackson, who faced too much pressure last season.

Dominic Solanke is still a name of interest as well, with his £65 million release clause making a summer move possible in the coming months.

Atletico Madrid Eyes Nicolas Jackson Amid Chelsea Uncertainty

According to TalkSport (via Daily Mail), Atletico Madrid is targeting Nicolas Jackson this summer. The Senegal international only moved to the Premier League last summer, scoring 14 goals.

The report adds that Jackson has been left unhappy with Pochettino’s departure, and Atletico is reportedly considering a move.

Conor Gallagher’s Future in Doubt as Chelsea Receives Multiple Offers

As interest in Gallagher continues to heat up, reports in Spain suggest that Atletico Madrid had a bid rejected for the midfielder.

AS reports that Atletico’s ‘cheeky’ offer of £16.9 million for the England international was swiftly turned down by Chelsea, falling considerably short of the Blues’ £50 million valuation.

Atletico Madrid are also keeping tabs on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ederson, Matt O’Riley, and Mats Wieffer. Meanwhile, Gallagher’s future has taken another turn, with Arsenal reportedly enquiring about his services.

According to Source, the Gunners have made contact with their London rivals to explore the possibility of signing Gallagher. The midfielder is expected to leave the club this window as he counts as pure profit.

Aston Villa and Tottenham have both been strongly linked with Gallagher, and the report adds that Manchester United are also showing interest. The number of clubs keeping an eye on the midfielder could be good news for Chelsea.
