Reports suggest that Chelsea have been offered the opportunity to sign Neymar from PSG before the transfer window closes.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues have been handed the chance to make the outstanding late signing due to the French champions’ concern regarding financial fair play.
The Brazilian has started the season in electric form, scoring six and assisting as many in just four Ligue 1 games.
This contrasts drastically from the current form of Chelsea’s attackers, who are yet to find the net with the exception of Raheem Sterling.
The Englishman has three goals in his last two games, however Kai Havertz and Mason Mount are yet to find the net despite starting in all five games this season.
Chelsea offered Neymar
Thomas Tuchel elected to give Hakim Ziyech a chance from the start last night against Southampton, however he failed to make the desired impact and only added to the manager’s headaches.
The Daily Mail have suggested Todd Boehly could be about to offer the German a last-minute fantastic reinforcement in Neymar, who the manager worked with previously at PSG.
The Brazilian’s quality is undoubted over the last decade, with his peers in particular recognising him as one of the best players on the planet.
He would certainly bring a level of talent the current Chelsea attack is lacking, and murmurs of discontent at the current situation at the Parc des Princes could make the deal a real possibility.
However, it is likely a move of this magnitude is unlikely to come to fruition with this little time left in the window.
Tomorrow’s deadline puts any move at risk of not being pulled off in time, and although he would be a fantastic addition to the club, it is likely to be too difficult to pull off for the owners this late in the window.
