‘Really Don’t Need Another Glass Cannon’ ‘Get The Guy And Then Manage Him Well’ Fans Discuss Chelsea’s Attempts To Secure 40M Signing

Chelsea are locked in talks to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke, according to reports in the Dutch media.

The Blues are believed to have tabled an opening bid of around €30m (£26m) but the main talking point is the player’s poor injury record.

Madueke has missed 49 games due to the injury over the last two and a half years and fans on Twitter have been debating whether the 20-year-old is worth signing:

There is no doubt that Madueke is a huge talent, but his fitness problems are rather concerning, and the Blues should be taking that into account before they decide to meet PSV’s asking price.

The Dutch club are believed to be holding out for a similar fee they sold Cody Gakpo to Liverpool, which means that Madueke could end up costing as much as €45m (£40m). Whether Graham Potter’s side will agree to pay that sort of figure for the England Under 21 international, we shall have to wait and see.
