Chelsea consider strike for Man City forward if they can solve Lukaku conundrum » Chelsea News

Gabriel Jesus is on Chelsea’s shortlist to possibly replace Romelu Lukaku, according to a Nizaar Kinsella report on Goal.com.

That reinforces earlier, less concrete reports about Chelsea’s plans to buy the Manchester City forward, who had been previous linked with Arsenal and European sides after another season not featuring centrally in Pep Guardiola’s plans.

Jesus has impressed in fits and starts at City, and clearly has a huge amount of ability, but has never managed to become a long term undisputed starter.

The first hurdle is of course getting rid of Romelu Lukaku – and we’re still not convinced that will be do-able given what Chelsea will want and what Inter can offer.

But if that does, the Blues will need a replacement, and if City can’t find another team to match their offer, they could well sell on their unwanted forward, even to a league rival like Chelsea – if they even consider us a rival at this point.
