‘Let’s Get Him’ ‘Please No’ ‘We Don’t Want Randoms’ Chelsea Fans Discuss Olise Alternative With £25M Buyout Fee

Chelsea are weighing up whether to make a move for Porto winger Francisco Conceicao before his release clause increases, according to Record.

The Portuguese tabloid claims that the buyout fee will rise from €30m (£25m) to €45m (£38m) on Monday and a number of teams, including the Blues, are contemplating bids. Fans on X are split on whether the forward would be a good addition to the squad:

Conceicao has a similar profile to Olise

The 21-year-old is a left-footed right winger in the same mould as Michael Olise. Chelsea are still in the market for an alternative after losing out to Bayern Munich for the Frenchman.

There are, though, still clear differences between the two players. Conceicao relies on his speed and low centre of gravity, and his end product is nowhere near as impressive as Olises’s.

Last season, the Portuguese international scored 8 goals and contributed 8 assists in 43 appearances for Porto.

Chelsea have looked at other wingers

In addition to Conceicao, the Blues have been linked with another left-footed forward, Borussia Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi, in recent days.

Athletic Bilbao’s Nico Williams is also on the club’s radar but he would be more suited to the left flank. Rennes’ Desire Doue is a younger option, who is said to be a player of interest to the recruitment department too.
