Despite completing the signing of a few new players last week. The West London club are still planning to reinforce their frontline.

As a result, Chelsea have some versatile attackers on their radar. Even though there are Sterling, Mudryk, Madueke, Ângelo and the rest.

Mauricio Pochettino seems to be an offensive manager. He wants his men to attack dangerously, destroying the opponent from midfield.

Before the signing of Lesley Ugochukwu and Axel Disasi. Chelsea are close to signing one or two attackers, who befits the manager’s style of play.

Of course, they will have to battle with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City. However, Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali are confident.

Under the canopy of reinforcing the frontline. The Premier League side have Mohamed Kudus, Rayan Cherki, and others on their list this summer transfer window.

Unfortunately, one of the Blues main targets has sustained an injury. As a result, he’s most unlikely to join the West London club, because they won’t sign him with an injury.

Chelsea’s target, Michael Olise, is currently on the sidelines as a result of a hamstring tear. Meanwhile, he has already undergone surgery at Crystal Palace.

Nevertheless, he won’t be fit for any competitive games until October 2023. Unbelievably, that means he would be unavailable for at least three months.

Even though he has a release clause of £35 million in his contract at Crystal Palace. The Blues and the Citizens are most unlikely to sign him.

Without being sentimental, clubs do sign players with injuries. And those players turn out to be an important part of the squad.

Chelsea signed Antonio Rüdiger with an injury. And he became a strong pillar of their defense line. It also applies to Manchester City with İlkay Gündoğan.

The West London club already have two alternatives to Michael Olise. They have Mohamed Kudus of Ajax and Rayan Cherki of Lyon in Ligue 1.

This may not be bad news for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola. However, it doesn’t look good for Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea.

The Blues already have enough injury-prone players in their squad. At the moment, Wesley Fofana and Trevoh Chalobah are on the sidelines.

At the same time, Benoit Badiashile, Christopher Nkunku, and Armando Broja are injured. Therefore, it would be unwise to keep signing injury-prone footballers.

As a result, the West London club are most likely to sign Michael Olise from Crystal Palace. At least, they can not keep nursing a three-month injury.

Therefore, Chelsea are expected to sign Mohamed Kudus or Rayan Cherki to boost the frontline. Which means the Eagles attacker is off the list.

Of course, Michael Olise would have been an amazing addition to the Blues family. Because he’s a player of high potential, and knows many things about the league.

He’s not expected to flop or struggle when he joins Chelsea. Nevertheless, the West London club are most unlikely to sign him due to his current injury.
