Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero has admitted that a future with domestic double winners Chelsea ‘excites’ him, which has undoubtedly fuelled a move away from the Spanish Capital this summer. Surely Carlo Ancelotti must take this as a clear sign and snap up the striker services this summer?
The 22-year-old Argentine is currently contracted to Atletico Madrid and has produced some fine performances for the Primera League outfit over the past 4 years, which has no doubt enhanced his reputation as one of Europe’s finest young forwards.
So far in his 4 year spell in Spain, the powerful forward has racked up a total of 73 goals in 190 games for Atletico Madrid and is also capped at international level 24 times. Aguero has been linked with a number of high-profile clubs because of his displays over recent years and has hinted that Chelsea would be a great future move on his part. This past Sunday (11th July) Aguero told the Daily Star:
“Of course Chelsea is of interest as they are one of the most powerful teams in European football. They show their intent summer after summer in the transfer market and more often than not that intent will see them end the season with at least one trophy.”
The Spanish side have conceded defeat in retaining the Argentine’s services and have told clubs interested that they will allow the powerful forward to leave if the price is right. Aguero is not looking for money, more so success and has pinpointed Chelsea as a great location for this to ensue:
“What I need to consider is where I can win things and I know for sure I can win things at Chelsea. You look at their players and you are excited about any future you may have there.”
Chelsea have show an interest in the player recently and surely now is the time for Ancelotti to act now before other big European clubs do. The domestic double winning champions do lack options upfront. Apart from Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, Chelsea do not attain a prolific striker in their ranks. Daniel Sturridge does not look like he is ready for a full-season, whilst Franco Di Santo does not like he will have a future at the club anytime soon, especially after his poor loan spell last season with Blackburn. This leaves Salomon Kalou who is a good player, but many will agree that the Ivorian international does lack the killer instinct in front of goal.
The fact is Chelsea do need to acquire a youthful, powerful, and deadly striker this summer in order to add depth to their front line for the upcoming season, and who better to do this than Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero. The player has recently expressed his interest in the West London club and would make an excellent addition to the current squad. The least Carlo Ancelotti could do is table a respectable bid for the Argentinean striker this summer, right?
