Chelsea eyeing for Mexico star Alexis Vega

Wright Chelsea's Potter

Chelsea and Graham Potter are eyeing to bring in new players to the club. Ever since Graham Potter joined Chelsea, he is having a bad season. He has lost to clubs like Brentford, Leeds, and many more and is currently standing 8th in the Premier League table. He wants things to get better for him.

Alexis Vega has informed his present club Guadalajara that he wants to leave the club in this summer.

Although Mexico got out of the World Cup in the group stage, Vega performed really well. Vega was the one that shined for the team and because of his performance, Chelsea got interested in that player.

Apart from Chelsea, Wolves is also interested in signing Alexis Vega. But Chelsea have got an upper hand, as they have better financial leverage. Chelsea is willing to sign this player as soon as possible.

USMNT star to exit Chelsea

Chelsea is looking to sign some players in January who can help them finish top 4. They are also ready to offload some players who have not fitted in the system. With some exiting the club, Chelsea will use that money to buy players.

Players like Christian Pulisic who have not fitted in Graham Potter’s style are likely to leave the club. The USMNT star is failing to cement a starting role at Stamford Bridge with any real regularity, a move away from the club is likely to happen very soon.

Chelsea signed Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for £57.6 M. Presently, the market price for him will be around £35 M. Chelsea can use that money to buy players like Alexis Vega or some other player who can score or assist so that Chelsea can win games.

Vega’s contract with Guadalajara expires in 2024. He has scored 3 goals and assisted 4 assists in the 17 league appearances. Because of his good domestic performances, he got a call from his nation to play in the World Cup.

Vega was quite impressive for Mexico in the World Cup. He had started all 3 matches for Mexico averaging 3 shots on target per match. He was a consistent threat to the opposition, and created many forward runs and passes for the team.

And his 3.8 shots per game in Mexico’s top division demonstrate a keen eye for goal that Potter could develop and hone, with the Blues manager’s philosophy and Chelsea’s position in the Premier League table offering the ideal setting for the continuation of this encouraging trend.
