Potter tells Chelsea to buy £44 million. The Leeds striker was also hoping to sign

Leeds United are no strangers to bigger teams trying to sign their transfer targets.

Their efforts to sign Charles from Ketelaere in the summer ended in failure, and they may also have a hard time landing Cody Gakpo.

A report from Jeunes Footeux suggests that Chelsea could be the next team to win a striker signing from them.

It was a summer of change for Chelsea with the arrival of new owners, and a host of new signings arriving at Stamford Bridge.

However, neither player has started to run, and Chelsea are struggling a bit in front of goal.

The Jeunes Footeux report suggests that new manager Graham Potter has told Chelsea to buy Martin Terrier.

The Stade Rennais striker has been playing brilliant football for the last 12 months.

The 25-year-old had many suitors in the summer but decided to stay in Rennes.

However, Chelsea now have money to burn and have their sights set on the versatile striker.

Leeds have also had their problems in front of goal this season.

You wouldn’t believe it after his extraordinary comeback over Bournemouth at the weekend.

However, Patrick Bamford’s form has not recovered after a series of injuries.

Rodrigo Moreno has never been a consistent goalscorer in his career and cannot be trusted throughout the season.

He can play left-back or centre-forward, and he has already scored eight goals this season.

He managed to score 21 last year, a remarkable tally that has put him on multiple teams’ radars.

A 90min report suggested that Leeds have been eyeing Terrier for weeks and want to sign him in January.

He reportedly didn’t tick enough boxes for Leeds in the summer, but that has probably changed after a string of strong performances this campaign.

However, with Potter telling Chelsea to sign Terrier, it may not be that easy anymore.

Jeunes Footeux believes a bid of at least £44m will be needed to sign the Frenchman.

That can push the ‘full’ forward out of your budget, especially if a bidding war breaks out.
