Chelsea’s move for a top striker signing this summer is inevitable.

Sporting striker Viktor Gyokeres is one of the names high on Chelsea’s list, as Chelsea are scouting the 25-year-old striker ahead of a potential  summer transfer.

According to Record via Sport Witness, Chelsea have already scouted Viktor Gyokeres on multiple occasions, and the Blues decided to have one final look at him during the international break.

According to the report, representatives of Chelsea were in the stands to watch the 25-year-old in action for Sweden against Portugal.

Gyokeres’s team lost the game 5-2, but he did put in an incredible shift and even scored a goal.

Sporting signed Gyokeres from Coventry City for €21 million last summer, and now has a valuation of €100m less than a year after.

The 25-year-old Sweden international has featured in a total of 39 matches for Sporting and has contributed 50 goals already.

Viktor Gyokeres has scored 36 goals this season, and is currently one of the hottest strikers in Europe.

Meanwhile, a Chelsea fan Daveg, has warned Chelsea not to make this move, claiming that Gyokeres won’t be worth it.

He commented: “He is playing in the Portuguese league with teams that would not be expected to make the grade in the premier league apart from the Portuguese top 4 teams.

“So I would really only judge his goals per 90 minutes scored when facing the top 4 Portuguese teams and of course include European and international games.

“You might find the his goals per 90 scored percentage drops considerably. Don’t forget he played for Coventry and was pretty average at best.

“I can see a team gambling by paying over £40 million for him, but £80 million is just laughable and the sort of money a desperate side like Chelsea would probably pay.”
