The acquisition of Jorginho remains Chelsea’s only major signing so far this summer, which is a concern for the club. They were well off the pace in the Premier League last term, and they’ll need far more than a new manager and one new signing to turn things around.
Fortunately, the club could be looking to sign one of Europe’s best young players.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are in the market for Man Utd ace Anthony Martial, who is reportedly open to leaving the club this summer. He didn’t get enough action at Old Trafford last season, and given Chelsea’s average squad depth going forward, he’d certainly get more minutes at Stamford Bridge.
A move wouldn’t be easy, of course, given the likely huge financial demands involved – but Chelsea fans online don’t seem to be too bothered about that.
Indeed, lots of Chelsea fans on Twitter are calling for the club to sign him, no matter the cost.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
Martial as willian replacement

I'll take martial any day of the week, we might grt around 50m for willian, and an unhappy martial might be able to leave for maybe 60-70,since everyone loves overcharging Chelsea

#cfc now I’m having a strong feeling Martial will end up at Chelsea

Willian involved or not, if we sign Martial imo he’d be the best attacking signing since Hazard. His potential as a striker in an attacking system is unreal! @ChelseaFC #CFC The Dream!!!! pic.twitter.com/VvbR3TnvRc

Personally, I would be very happy if we brought in Martial he has a lot of potential and can certainly be something special under the right manager. I am certainly in favour of a move for Martial.

Just imagine Martial playing striker in a Sarri system! His pace and dribbling ability is amazing. He’s a great finisher as well.
