Chelsea: Graham Potter green-lights Martin Terrier move

Chelsea: Graham Potter green-lights Martin Terrier move - Chelsea News

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has personally set his sights on signing in-form Rennes forward Martin Terrier, according to reports from France.

The Lowdown: New forwards needed?

Romelu Lukaku’s summer loan exit to Inter Milan and the patchy form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has arguably highlighted the Blues’ need for new centre-forward options.

There are few natural goalscorers in Potter’s current squad, although you could make a case for the likes of Raheem Sterling and Armando Broja, with Chelsea now potentially looking to the transfer market for solutions.

This comes amid a new era at Stamford Bridge, with American tycoon and owner Todd Boehly now looking to make the west London side a major Premier League force again.

The Latest: Potter green-lights Chelsea move for Terrier…

According to Jeunes Footeux, it appears that Potter has personally given the green light for Chelsea to move for Rennes star Terrier, whose form could make him an outside bet to make France’s 2022 World Cup squad.

It’s claimed that the Chelsea manager has asked his board to target at least one attacking signing in January and has recommended a move for the 25-year-old to solve his goalscoring problems.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Terrier has been one of the continent’s most deadly forward players since the beginning of 2021/22.

Scorer of 21 goals and provider of four assists in Ligue 1 alone last season, the attacker has followed on from that dazzling campaign with eight goals and three assists in just 13 starts so far this term (WhoScored).

Journalist Graeme Bailey claims that there are ‘few better players in Europe‘ right now than Terrier, while other members of the press have called him ‘sublime’.

The Frenchman could certainly be a viable candidate to add some much-needed fire power to Potter’s ranks at Chelsea.
