The recent candid remarks made by Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino regarding his team’s inability to score will only stoke the flames as he considers adding a striker in January.
The Blues manager struggled to explain how his team lost. After all their unbeaten streak of four games came to an end at Stamford Bridge against Brentford.
However, Santiago Gimenez, a striker for Feyenoord, might be the answer.
Mauricio Pochettino is targeting Santiago Gimenez
With 15 goals in 13 games across all competitions this season, Santiago Gimenez has established himself as one of Europe’s most formidable strikers.
He now also leads Manchester City goal machine Erling Haaland by two goals.
Although after witnessing his side go blank once more, Pochettino publicly addressed the board. Said it is an urgent matter that needs to be resolved in January.
He told: “We have tried to identify [the problem] but it’s not only happened from the beginning of this season, it’s also from last season, with different coaches.”
“Yes, it’s something we need to fix. I don’t say I’m worried but, of course. we’re trying hard to find the solution.”
But occupying Santiago Gimenez in January will not be easy for Chelsea. While Real Madrid and Barcelona both are interested in him.
According to ESPN, Barcelona have also been actively scouting Gimenez since he joined Feyenoord from Cruz Azul in 2022.
However the catalan club have some economical difficulties so that Blues have a significant chance.
Therefore it’s crystal clear all big European shark will go for him as he is outscoring everyone.
