Enzo Maresca could have a new striker to work with at Chelsea should he take over there as expected, with the Blues reportedly interested in Atletico Madrid’s young forward of Nigerian descent Samu Omorodion.

Chelsea look close to appointing Maresca as their new manager after making him their No.1 target.

According to the reliable Fabrizio Romano, everything is sorted now, so the 44-year-old should be the man who succeeds Mauricio Pochettino at Stamford Bridge.

Nicolas Jackson was Chelsea’s main striker in the outgoing season, and it looks like another centre-forward could be joining him in west London this summer.

The Senegal international scored 17 goals in 44 appearances for the Blues.

Chelsea signed Jackson from Villarreal last summer and could return to Spain to strengthen their forward line.

A report from CaughtOffside claims that the Blues are set to explore a potential transfer deal for Omorodion.

It also states that Omorodion could cost €60m (£51m) if he leaves Atletico Madrid when the market opens.

The 20-year-old spent this season out on loan at Alaves. There, he scored eight goals in 34 La Liga appearances.
