The Mexican frontman presents a financially sound alternative for Chelsea, especially when compared to their interest in pricier options like the £65 million-rated Ivan Toney and Europe’s most highly sought-after striker, Victor Osimhen.

According to the well-regarded transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the proposed sum of £39 million could prove to be a sufficient amount to successfully secure Gimenez’s services.
