Nigeria forward Terem Moffi has been linked with a move to European champions Chelsea , Completesports.com reports.
The Blues are in a market for a new striker after Timo Werner failed to make impact in his maiden season at the club.
The Premier League champions have been linked with the trio Erling Haaland , Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane.
Lukaku has declared he is not willing to leave Inter Milan this summer, while Kane, who is determined to leave Tottenham Hotspur is favoured to join Manchester City.

Haaland could also remain with Borussia Dortmund as the Bundesliga giants are not prepared to allow the forward leave this summer.
According Football London, Moffi is among the strikers under consideration by the West London club.
Moffi enjoyed an impressive debut season at Ligue 1 side Lorient and without his 14 goals, it is likely the French side would’ve suffered relegation.
The 22-year-old’s underlying numbers are impressive. Despite Lorient finishing 16th in the French top flight, he struck 0.58 goals per 90 minutes and his expected goals per 90 was 0.46. He also managed to achieve 0.11 expected goals assisted per 90 minutes.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.

If there is any iota of truth in this story please moffi DO NOT GO TO CHELSEA because they don’t give room to young players like you, We all saw how Lukaku, K. Debryna of Man City, and M.Sallah were treated at chelsea. Besides, Tuchel is using his position to further the career of the German players in that club by imposing them on the first eleven not minding their weaknesses. I will advise that you go to middle league clubs in England or some other clubsides in spain , even France etc where you can horn your talent better. Please, don’t go to any club that will confine you to their bench.
@Frank Smith that was down to Jose Mourinho. He was the culprit of all that Happened to Salah, Lukaku and Co as it is no secret that Mourinho does not give young players a look in however, Thomas Tuchel is a different coach and likes young players. I am one that believes in not shying away from a challenge. Personally if he feels he can make it in Chelsea. then please at least let him go there if he excels Nigeria benefits if not. He will probably move to a mid table English team which I don’t wish but, at least with the chelsea move he has 2 feet in England and, playing in Everton or Aston Villa or Leeds for e.g. is far better than staying in a Bottom side in the French Ligue 1, interms of exposure for a player to other clubs England is the most marketable for any player world wide. let us think strategically when it comes to the kind of advice we give our players on Media Platforms
Terrem will make it in any of the top teams in England. He is such power playing left legged striker very rear to find. However, I strongly believe this is FAKE NEWS ALIAS MARKETING GIMMICK.
If this is true, this is a bad move. Chelsea are looking for deals and take backs. Such as getting back Lukaku and might have a pre 2022 agreement for over 150 million euros on Haaland. Chelsea is already a severely bloated squad where players will see months until playing again let alone make the bench. He will be loaned out, no doubt. Happen to Saar, signed with chelsea in the summer then loaned out later to porto. This makes no sense. If one care about their career don’t sign, just a big ole loan team. Tuchel is playing German and experienced players as well. He played Werner and Havertz in champions league final, he don’t care if they don’t ever score he still gonna play them. Also lately a lot of stories posted here are lies. Like Gareth Bale retiring and etc. I watch international sports news where football is healingly reported, but nothing related here.
The same people saying this guy shouldn’t go to Chelsea are the same ones that advised Iheanacho to go to Porto instead of City.
It’s not about making it at a particular club, it’s about your chances of making it as a successful footballer long term, And there is more chance of success if you are exposed to the facilities, opportunities to train with the best players and coaches, as well as the connections that come with playing for a big club.
If you don’t make it at Chelsea, at least you’ll get a big salary and if you’ve worked hard you can go to a slightly smaller club. Take Traore for instance, he didn’t cut it at Chelsea and was sent on loan to Ajax, then sold to Lyon and now he’s in Villa. Even the regular names like Sallah, Debruyne and Lukaku all succeeded partly because of their opportunities with Chelsea.
Players’ parents and agents know that the chances of breaking into the first team of a big club are narrow, but in most cases it’s always in the interest of the players to sign when they come calling.
