English Premier League giant Chelsea FC, is considering a transfer for Ghanaian superstar Asamoah Gyan from the Chinese side, Shanghai SIPG.
According to insider reports from England, Chelsea is seeking the move to bring in one of Ghana’s best exports back to the English Premier League this summer.
Shanghai SIPG are on the verge of offloading Gyan because of the injuries he has suffered since the multi-million dollar move from UAE side Al Ain over a year ago.
According to reports received by GhanaStar.com, Gyan is a major target for Chelsea who are seeking a top notch target man who has experience in the English Premier League. Gyan featured for Sunderland earlier in his career—making a big impact in the EPL with a series of powerful, explosive displays—before leaving the European game to chase petrodollars in the United Arab Emirates with Al Ain FC before moving to Shanghai SIPG.
Injuries have affected the forward’s progress in the Chinese Super League, where he’s struggled to have the desired impact, despite earning a mooted $350,000, a fee which made him the sixth best-paid player in the world when he moved to the Far East.
Shanghai are already lining up Zenit St. Petersburg hitman Hulk as a possible replacement for Gyan, and are looking to offload the Ghana frontman, either on a permanent or a temporary basis.
Caught Offside sources have revealed that Chelsea has been alerted to the forward’s availability, and are considering offering him a route back to Western Europe, although the Pensioners are unlikely to match his current earnings.
The 30-year-old still has some good years left at the top level—if he can overcome his recent injury concerns—and would be an ideal upgrade on the likes of Loic Remy, Radamel Falcao and Alex Pato, all of whom have been tipped for the exit door this summer.
