Chelsea has reportedly entered the race to secure the services of Napoli’s highly-regarded winger, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who is tagged with a significant €100 million (£87m/$109m) price. The 22-year-old forward from Georgia has garnered attention from prominent clubs across Europe, including Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Newcastle, all keenly interested in acquiring his talents.
Kvaratskhelia’s rise in the football world surged during Napoli’s victorious Serie A campaign in 2022-23, amassing an impressive record of 14 goals and 17 assists in 43 appearances across all competitions. Notably, following significant departures from Napoli, such as Kim Min-jae’s move to Bayern Munich and Kalidou Koulibaly’s transfer to Chelsea in 2022, Kvaratskhelia has emerged as a prime target for top clubs.
According to ESPN reports, Chelsea from Stamford Bridge has set their sights on Kvaratskhelia, aligning with their strategy of investing in players with substantial potential. The winger’s valuation is speculated to hit the nine-figure mark, a figure that won’t deter Chelsea if they can navigate within Financial Fair Play regulations to secure his services.
Moreover, Chelsea is reportedly also monitoring Napoli’s striker, Victor Osimhen, and Brentford’s standout talent Ivan Toney as potential additions, specifically aiming to bolster their striking options with another proven No. 9.
