Chelsea Opinion: Alexander Isak signing just become a summer priority

According to a recent report by The Mirror, Chelsea are said to be lining up a double summer striker swoop as they look to target talismanic Polish forward Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich as well as Borussia Dortmund’s prodigious Swedish international Alexander Isak.

While Lewandowski is already 30 and bringing a playing like to the Premier League and expecting immediate results would be a grave mistake by the Blues hierarchy. They would certainly be better off bringing the prolific presence of Dortmund’s Alexander Isak to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s woes in front of the goal have been no surprise to the fans through the years. Ever since the rather inevitable departure of legendary forward Didier Drogba, they’ve really struggled to find someone who would fit in the role fairly well.

While they did have a partial hit in the form of Spanish forward Diego Costa, a spat with former manager Antonio Conte forced him to exit, effectively making the entire team pay for the manager’s downfalls.

Their latest venture was the January acquisition of former Real Madrid and Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is currently at Stamford Bridge on a loan deal with an option to extend.

His efforts have been appreciated by the Blues fans but he hasn’t done nearly enough yet to really warrant a permanent deal. With his age now rising as well, it wouldn’t be smart for the Blues to depend of the Argentine for a prolonged period.

As suggested, Alexander Isak is one of the players that the Blues are said to be very keen on in the summer. The Swedish international currently plays for Willem II Tilburg in the Dutch Eredivisie on loan from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

His numbers in the Eredivisie this season have been impeccable and is definitely the factor that led Chelsea to scouting the player in the first place. His exploits for the Dutch club haven’t gone unnoticed as he seems to be having his breakthrough season.


The 19-year-old already has a professional goal for Dortmund to his name but what makes him stand out are his figures for Willem II this season. His 11 appearances since the January switch have produced a whopping 11 goals as well as 3 assists, making him one of the league’s hottest properties.

His movement and sharpness in front of goal have been excellent while the finishing abilities that he showcases are well beyond his age as well. With a massive future ahead of him, a move to Chelsea will do the youngster a lot of good and the Blues must push to get this deal done at the earliest.
