Rumours making the round claims the EPL defending champions Chelsea have entered the race to sign Senegal international Moussa Konate after having a successful start for the season scoring seven goals in nine games for the Swiss side Sion.
This is according to the Express which claims Konate’s agant Abtoine Issa Kossoko has confirmed that both Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in the services of the 22-year old forward/winger.
“Lots of English clubs are interested in Moussa,” Antoine Issa Kossoko said.
“Chelsea and Arsenal scouts are keeping an eye on him – but he is not obsessed with the Premier League and will consider good offers from Germany, Spain or England.
“Hannover, Mainz and Bruges were keen on him this summer, offering up to £6m.
“But Sion said they would not sell for less than £10m.”
The 22-year old forward was one of the key players for Senegal in 2012 Olympic game scoring five goals. He is currently valued at £10millon which is not too big for the Stamford Bridge outfit to meet.
Although, the young star’s quality is in no doubt but I don’t see Chelsea pushing in for this deal simply because the they have enough quality players up front who are yet to find a spot in the starting line-up.
Nigerian international Victor Moses was given a new four years contract this summer before he was sent on loan to West Ham United which invariably means the Blues still see him as part of their future plans coupled with other great player such as Juan Cuadrado, Patrick Bamford and Mohamed Salah who could still find their way back to Stamford Bridge at the end of the Season.
