German Striker Keen To Make £6m Chelsea Move

By on February 25, 2013

Despite the transfer window now being closed there will still be plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Chelsea are linked with Stefan Kiessling.

Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling for a cut-price £6million with the German hitman said to be keen on a switch to Stamford Bridge, according to the Metro.

The report claims that Kiessling has his heart set on a move to the Premier League this summer after seeing a switch to West Ham derailed in January, and the German international’s agent is understood to have contacted Chelsea first as his client is desperate to play in London for a top club.

Kiessling is the Bundesliga’s top-scorer this season with 15 goals in 22 games so far and he has bagged 119 goals in 339 matches during his seven-year stint with Leverkusen, so he certainly knows where the goal is.

However, it seems his time in Germany may be coming to an end with the Metro claiming the player is determined to force a move this summer and Bayer are believed to be willing to let the 29-year-old go for just £6million.

The newspaper also suggests that Chelsea are on the look-out for another striker in the summer to compete with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba and may be tempted by the 6 foot 3 inch striker as he would provide them with something different up front.

I’m not convinced that will be the case though. While Kiessling is a decent goalscorer he’s not the kind of player I can see Roman Abramovich going for if he’s looking for a striker to turn his Chelsea side back into champions.

Would Chelsea fans like to see Kiessling come to the Bridge in the summer? Get involved in the comments section below.

    when will cfc settle down and finally become reasoneable.we have 22 quality young players on loan and no one is talking about the future.what will a 29yr old come up with in a tight club like cfc,not to talk of torres&Ba who’re in thier 30s.chelsea should sign hungry players who want to be known for something.cfc should sign robert lewandoski and sell torres to give chance for lukaku nxt season.again sign brazilian fernandinho to solve our midfield holes and mayb felleine thats the formula.

      chelsea need to recall lukaku to first team spot during summer and send F. Torres on loan may be to Bolton because it will be better for him
