Belgian Loïs Openda is the latest striker being linked with a move to Chelsea, even though he only joined RB Leipzig in the summer.
He had first come to prominence in Belgium with Club Brugge, before spending two seasons in Dutch football with Vitesse Arnhem on loan.
However, it was his one season with Lens in Ligue 1 that persuaded RB Leipzig to buy him, scoring 21 goals in 42 games.
And he has maintained his ratio of a goal every two clubs with his new club, finding the netfive times for the German side.
It may be difficult to persuade the Bundesliga side to part with the 23 year old, and they will demand a substantial premium on the £40 million that they paid for him.
That, however, has not proved a deterrent to Chelsea in the past, and is unlikely to do so in this case either.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
