And as a result of this, Chelsea football club are already on the lookout for an ideal replacement and have been linked with a move for highly-rated Feyenoord striker who goes by the name Santiago Gimenez.
The 22-year-old Mexico International, who decided to leave Cruz Azul in 2022 to sign up for Feyenoord has proven to be an important member of the first-team squad since he made the move.
The young centre-forward played a huge role as Feyenoord won the league title during the 2022/2023 season where he scored 28 goals and provided three assists in 50 appearances in all competitions.
The young striker Santiago Gimenez has also enjoyed an interesting start to the new 2023/2024 season so far, scoring 15 goals and recording three assists in the 11 matches he has played.
His excellent performances for Feyenoord has caugh the attention of Chelsea football club and according to latest reports from Transfer News Live, the Blues are keen on signing him.
The reports further claimed that Chelsea football club are really interested in Santiago Gimenez and have now added the highly-rated striker to their transfer list for next year.
It is believed that Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to add more goalscoring threat to his first-team squad in 2024 and he has identified Santiago Gimenez as a needed addition.
But with Feyenoord already demanding for up to £100million transfer fee, it remains to be seen if Chelsea football club will be able to pay and secure the services of Santiago Gimenez in 2024.
