This summer, Daichi Kamada of Eintracht Frankfurt is reportedly a target for Chelsea.
The 26-year-old playmaker Kamada is having a standout season in Germany.
This season, in 32 games for Frankfurt in all competitions, the Bundesliga standout has 13 goals and five assists.
He can, however, depart for free this summer as his contract expires.
According to the Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund already have a verbal agreement to sign Kamada in the summer when he becomes a free agent.
However, the report says Chelsea and Manchester United still think they may be able to change the player’s mind on his future.
They both want to try to convince the Japan international to make the move to the Premier League. Have they left it too late, though?
For certain, the attacking midfielder would be an exciting addition to England’s top division.
Kamada, who’s got great versatility to play in midfield or attack, is very clever with his passing and movement.
He’s a goal threat with three goals scored in this season’s Champions League competition, including against Tottenham in the group stages.
But for Chelsea, he shouldn’t be a priority target looking ahead to the summer.
We sound like a broken record here but the club’s transfer strategy simply has to be in finding a No.9, despite the Champions League heroics of Kai Havertz in midweek against Dortmund.
Kamada would only be joining a Chelsea squad at Stamford Bridge that already has a number of playmakers.
