Chelsea keen to complete signing of Brazilian striker this summer

The Blues (Chelsea) are keen on landing 21-years-old Brazilian international Matheus Cunha ahead of next season campaign.

The Blues have been in the news for months now as they are in hunt for a new striker that will bolster the attacking force of the the west Londoniers squad ahead of next season campaign.

Frank Lampard seems to be the right man for the job, as he has been struggling during the lockdown period to seal some quality deals ahead of next season campaign.

The London club has successful completed a deal for Germany international Timo Werner, but it seems that Frank Lampard is still eager to sign one more quality player that will bolster the attacking line

The Blues are reportedly leading the chase for the possible summer signing of Hertha Berlin attacker Matheus Cunha. The Brazilian international has caught the eye of Frank Lampard with his excellent displays in the Bundesliga. Spanish giant Real Madrid are also among the clubs interested in the €20m-rated forward.

The 21-year-old Brazilian international play mainly as a center-forward but can also be in action in the role of a left-winger and a supportive striker.

Matheus Cunha joined the Hertha Berlin side after completing £18m deal from RB Leipzig in the 2019-20 season campaign, and has been impressive for the Germany club.

The 21-year-old Brazilian seems to have a big talent and could fit in well in this youthful side that Frank Lampard is putting together at London. And at a reported low fee of €20m, the winger could end up being an absolute bargain for the London club in the long run, provided he can continue to improve and develop at this rate, having so many young talents in Chelsea will also help the Brazilian to grow more and blend well with the English side. The London giants signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax during the winter transfer window.

The Brazil Under-23 international has three goals in just five games for Hertha Berlin, and it’s little surprise top clubs seem to be taking notice of him because of his brilliant performance. Frank Lampard wants to strengthen the front-line during the summer transfer window as veterans Pedro Rodriguez and Willian are out of contract and ready to leave on free transfer.

However, Spanish giant Real Madrid manager have done well to sign the best young talent from Brazil in recent times, including Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior. The London giants are currently ahead of Los Blancos in the race for the Brazilian attacker’s signature ahead of next season campaign.

This will be a perfect signing for that Blues, as this possible signing will also prove to be a long-term investment for the London side because of the player’s age.
