Chelsea remain in the market for a new striker and winger following the marquee additions of Tosin Adarabioyo and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. New head coach Enzo Maresca has already sanctioned 11 transfers this summer with more likely to arrive and a number of decisions awaiting the 44-year-old.

Viktor Gyokeres, Alexander Isak, Victor Osimhen, Nico Williams, Karim Adeyemi and Johan Bakayoko have all been linked as attacking additions. Chelsea already have plenty of options at their disposal in the frontline with Cole Palmer, Nicolas Jackson and Noni Madueke all shining in the latter stages of the 2023/24 season.

Mykhailo Mudryk, Raheem Sterling and Christopher Nkunku all struggled, though an imminent exit for any of the trio seems very unlikely. Michael Olise initially appeared to be Chelsea's top attacking target before he ultimately chose to sign for Bayern Munich.

Chelsea have since looked at alternatives with Williams and Bakayoko considered while Olmo has recently emerged as a potential signing. A move from RB Leipzig to Stamford Bridge for the Spain international appears unlikely, however his international teammate Williams joining is a possibility.

Reports in Spain have claimed Barcelona have met the €58 million (£48.9m) release clause in his Athletic Bilbao contract but the 21-year-old could turn down the move in favour of arriving in the Premier League. Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked to the exciting winger, despite him recently penning a new contract in Spain.

Adeyemi is another to have been recently linked to a Chelsea transfer with reports in Germany suggesting Borussia Dortmund are in talks with the Blues over a potential move.

The Germany international, who can play on both wings, struggled with injuries in the last campaign but his electric pace and eye for goal could finally give Chelsea what they were looking for from Mudryk, all for just £25m with Dortmund keen to sell in order to make more signings.

In attack, with Isak and Osimhen unlikely to join, Gyokeres could be Chelsea's best chance of acquiring a striker this summer. During his first season in Portugal with Sporting CP, the 26-year-old managed a stunning 43 goals from 50 appearances.

It has since been claimed his release clause stands at £85m which Chelsea could look to activate later in the window once more sales are completed. Those three options, alongside Palmer, would give Chelsea a truly excellent attack heading into the 2024/25 campaign.

Dream Chelsea attack with transfers: Adeyemi, Palmer, N.Williams; Gyokeres.
