Chelsea face Premier League transfer tussle over young Croatian striker

Published 2 Comments

Chelsea are fighting off interest from elsewhere in the Premier League, as well as Russia and Italy, in the bid to sign Croatian starlet Andrej Kramaric.

According to the Daily Mirror, Stamford Bridge scouts have been impressed with what they have seen on the 21-year-old and could make a move this summer.

The report claims Chelsea will look to beat the likes of Fulham, CSKA Moscow and Udinese to Kramaric’s signature.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is likely to need a bid worth somewhere in the region of €4million to convince his club Dinamo Zagreb to sell.

Kramaric has been in good form while on loan at Lokomotiva Zagreb, scoring 14 goals in 25 league games.

This is in contrast to current Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, who has netted just seven times in the Premier League this season.

Abramovich sanctioned the purchase of Newcastle United hotshot Demba Ba in January, but the Senegal international has only been able to get on the scoresheet twice in the league since his move.

Kramaric is yet to make a senior international appearance for Croatia but he is very highly rated and is expected to eventually break into the squad.
