Potentially exciting news !
The Fichaies website claims we are interested in signing the 25 year old Flamengo striker Pedro in the summer.
Our ashen faced supremo is a big fan of the player and if he is still around wants to bring him back to Europe ahead of next season.
Pedro came through the ranks at the Brazilian club Fluminense before joining Fiorentina back in 2019.
After just six months with the Serie A club, he was sent back to Brazil on loan. He failed to impress in the Italian top flight and returned to South America. He then joined Flamengo on a permanent basis in the winter transfer window of 2021.
He obviously missed his mother`s home cooking as since his return to Brazil, he has been sensational – nine goals in seven games ! And according to this website, he is keen on another crack at Europe.
We have been awful in front of goal this season – 19 goals in 22 games! We desperately need reinforcements in attack. It goes without saying that the former Fiorentina forward will add more firepower to our cause and he is (in Chelski terms) quite cheap at about £40 million.
This of course is all moot if we do not stay up.
