Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund has told the Italian club that he wants to leave amid CHELSEA interest.
Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino knows that he is joining a club that struggled to score goals last season and were one of the lowest in the top-flight.
That has led to many reports in the media that some of the games top strikers could be heading to the club – especially as Pochettino has reportedly told Ted Boehly that he wants a top named signed.
Hojlund has been attracting interest from clubs all over Europe with the 20-year-old impressing with his performances in Serie A.
Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked to the Dane but Atalanta are not keen to sell, with an offer of £55million possibly forcing them to move that stance.
But now Hojlund has asked the club if he can move on after only a year in Italy, according to 90min.
He has reportedly made his thoughts on leaving the club clear through his agents SEG, and the reports claim this news may lead to Chelsea swooping in to try and bring the striker to the Premier League this summer
Look, Hojlund has had a brilliant season and he is going to be a top striker, But Chelsea need a man that can score goals NOW – not in 3 or 4 years time.
The board wants trophies – Pochettino has come in to win and he will want a forward signed that has played at the top level for season -scored goals for fun and of course can play his kind of football.
If Hojlund does leave Atalanta – we are certain it will not be for a move to CHELSEA – he is not ready.
