Chelsea looking to fund more transfer business

Chelsea may have spent almost £1 billion in the three transfer windows since Todd Boehly and Clearwater Capital took over the club.

But their appetite for spending is undiminished, with news that they are trying to raise a further £500 million from US financial investors to fund more acquisitions.

Top of the shopping list is a new striker, with Ivan Toney of Brentford and Victor Osimhen among their January targets.

One of the issues that the club currently has, though, is its lowly position in the table means that it is difficult to attract top talent, with the prospect of European football next season already beginning to look unrealistic, whilst the Champions League already looks out of reach.

Somebody like Osimhen, for example, will not lack for offers, and he has already been the subject of a mega bid from Saudi Arabia which was turned down.

However long a contract Chelsea might be prepared to offer such players, they will not want to spend the best years of their career playing for a mid-table team.
