According to the Daily Star, the Chelsea have added another in-form striker ‘Ollie Watkins’ to there transfer shortlist after his impressive form this season.
However, Chelsea are expected to lose Olivier Giroud at the end of the season and a number of strikers have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge including the likes of Paris St-Germain’s Edinson Cavani and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
Watkins, 24, has scored 17 goals in 27 games for Brentford this season, having moved to the striker’s position from the wing.
As per the reports, Chelsea are keeping tabs on him as Frank Lampard is looking to add another attacker to his squad in the summer.
However, ‘monitoring’ and ‘keeping tabs’ does not necessarily suggest there is real interest in the player.
Meanwhile, we will have to wait for further updates to find out whether it’s anything bigger than just another transfer rumour.
