Next Chelsea transfer decided amid Alexander Isak, Victor Osimhen and Jonathan David links

We are officially into July and the transfer window is beginning to heat up. Chelsea have already completed four signings this summer, with Tosin Adarabioyo arriving on a free transfer, Omari Kellyman signing from Aston Villa and Brazilian wonderkid Estevao Willian, who will join the club in 2025, completing a deal.

The latest addition is Marc Guiu, who joins from Barcelona in a deal worth £5million. The 18-year-old only made his debut for the Spanish giants last October, but the Blues have moved quickly to sign the young striker.

It looks almost certain that Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall will be joining the ranks in the coming days, with the 25-year-old set to join Enzo Maresca in switching Leicester City for Stamford Bridge this summer. But what will come after that?

There are a few areas of the squad which still require some attention - as delves into below...

Take Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall out of the equation because by all accounts that deal seems as good as done. Hopefully I haven't jinxed anything there.

But I want to see a central striker come in. Granted, the market is quite small out there. There were tentative links to Alexander Isak but that won't be happening this summer.

Jhon Duran is not completely off the table. Samu Omorodion looks to be unfortunately. There must be a 'mystery' centre-forward Chelsea have an eye on behind the scenes.

They will of course have a shortlist of targets and there must be some we do not know about yet. Either way, Chelsea are still looking at bringing a new striker to the club despite capturing Marc Guiu earlier this week.

That is imperative for Chelsea because we do not want to see a repeat of last season where Nicolas Jackson was relied on too heavily.

The next Chelsea transfer after Marc Guiu looks set to be Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, with talks at an advanced stage over a deal with Enzo Maresca's former club Leicester City. But if we ignore that one, who should be next?

Well, it's got to be a striker and the Blues have been linked with so many that it could be hard to sift through them all and come to the right name.

However, there is one name that really stands out that no one has been talking about for some time - Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian has been heavily linked with Chelsea in the past, but not so much so far in this summer transfer window.

He will cost a small fortune, of course, to sign him, but he is just what Chelsea need. He's strong, he's got pace and he knows where the back of the net is. Granted he doesn't have Premier League experience, but he could be the perfect statement signing for Maresca this summer.

There are a couple of areas which still need clarity in the Chelsea squad, and to be fair we may just see that when Enzo Maresca starts showing what he wants his team to look like in pre-season.

For now, there are still questions over the goalkeeper; there are rumours that Maresca is a fan of Robert Sanchez, despite Djordje Petrovic's impressive form in the second half of the campaign. Chelsea have been keeping tabs on Giorgi Mamardashvili - and a £35million transfer would represent good business for the man who has impressed so much for Georgia at Euro 2024.

But for me, a new striker should be the area of focus for the club. While the arrival of Marc Guiu could prove to be a very shrewd move, I don't think he'll be immediately challenging Nicolas Jackson for a starting role - and instead will probably be a replacement for Armando Broja, with the Albanian star set to leave.

Alexander Isak is a clear talent that would be a signal of intent from the club - but may prove too costly. If that is the case, then bringing in Jonathan David would definitely add the depth needed in attack to push Jackson for a starting place.

Tom Coley

Chelsea have been busy this summer but they probably aren't any stronger on paper yet than they were at the end of last season. That has to change quickly enough.

Maresca needs a new striker (sorry, but Guiu doesn't count as the answer just yet), but it is easier said than done to find the right man. Jonathan David is perhaps the best value-for-money option out there, but Jhon Duran would be a more exciting and rogue choice.

His ceiling is higher but Chelsea would need to deal with the troughs and developmental wait that comes with a transfer of the like. What this is to say is that Chelsea really need to be making signings now in the key positions.

Diogo Costa is a top-level goalkeeper and one of those is on the wishlist, Georgi Mamardashvili is proving himself to be more than capable as well. Both would offer Chelsea plenty between the sticks. Antonee Robinson is an outside shout at left-back.

Sam Truelove

It looks like it's going to be a busy summer transfer window for the Premier League in general and Chelsea are very much included in that. Enzo Maresca has a decent squad at his disposal and, in my opinion, is only a few signings away from challenging for the Champions League places.

My next arrival would be a top class striker. Nicolas Jackson did well last campaign but the 23-year-old is still young and inexperienced at this level. His 14 goals in 35 Premier League appearances is respectable but he did miss quite a lot of chances, too.

For this reason I would look to sign either Ivan Toney or Dominic Solanke. Both have Premier League experience, have shown they can score goals and are decent finishers. Chelsea need a ready-made striker for the present, not one for the future, and one of Toney or Solanke would do a decent job.

I’m going to be a bit different to anyone else and focus on building from the back. One position that will be integral to Chelsea’s play under Enzo Maresca is the goalkeeper and it’s an area that will need to be addressed quickly in the transfer window.

Under Maresca the goalkeeper needs to be comfortable playing out from the back. It is said that the Italian is happy with Robert Sanchez, but if another better option comes up, then he’s not likely to turn his back on it.

One goalkeeper in the headlines is Portugal international Diogo Costa. The Porto man saved three penalties in the shootout against Slovenia in Euro 2024 this week, but he has earned praise for his all-around performances too.

Chelsea have been linked with an interest earlier this summer, and will have been impressed with his performances on the biggest stage. The goalkeeper is integral to Maresca’s style that he will implement over the summer, so it’s important that Chelsea get the position right in the transfer window, whether they make a signing or stick with Sanchez.
