Blues started negotiations with Reading striker Danny Loader and prepare to make a bid in June when the transfer window opens again. Chelsea have problems in the front-line as Gonzalo Higuain and Olivier Giroud already up to 30, and they need back-up.
English centre-forward is the perfect option in this situation as he had an excellent season and paid attention. Maurizio Sarri will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Juventus and Arsenal also planning to make an offer during the transfer window.
Danny is a product of the Royals youth academy and spent his current career with them. He has a vast potential and can become a top-class striker if he continuous improvement. In this campaign, Loader played 33 matches, scored 11 goals and made two assists in all tournament.
It is a fantastic consequence, and he can do much more with high-class teammates. The 18-year-old centre-forward’s release clause is around €3m, which is a relevant price for such a talented striker. Probably he will accept the right offer from the Italian manager during the summer transfer window.
London club had an impressive consequence in the Premier League as they finished the competition in a third place. Chelsea also reached the Europa League final, and they have to face Arsenal next week.
English club signed several players last summer like Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid, Jorginho from Napoli and Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao. Blues also added Juventus centre-forward Gonzalo Higuain and Borussia Dortmund forward Christian Pulisic.
