Chelsea Looks to Sign Girona Star Artem Dovbyk for Competition with Nicolas Jackson, Reportedly Also Eyeing Mudryk as Potential Transfer Target

Chelsea Eyes Ukrainian Striker Artem Dovbyk

Chelsea’s Interest in Dovbyk

Chelsea Football Club has reportedly placed Artem Dovbyk high on their transfer shortlist. The Ukrainian striker has been a standout player for Girona, spearheading the team’s surprising rise to the top of LaLiga with 11 goals and four assists in the league. This impressive performance has caught the attention of Chelsea, with manager Mauricio Pochettino sending scouts to watch Dovbyk in recent weeks.

Dovbyk’s Impact at Girona

Artem Dovbyk’s form at Girona has led to increased interest from top clubs, including Chelsea. His tall and physical profile, along with his goalscoring prowess, has made him a target for Pochettino as he looks to add “weight” to his team’s front line. This comes at a time when Nicolas Jackson, Chelsea’s 22-year-old striker, is set to depart for the African Cup of Nations with Senegal. The potential exit of Armando Broja also opens up a spot for Dovbyk to compete for the number 9 position.

Agent Connection and Transfer Value

Interestingly, Dovbyk shares the same agent as fellow Ukrainian player Mykhailo Mudryk, and the two have a close friendship, speaking to each other daily. With a contract running until 2028, Dovbyk could be sold for around 45 million euros or £39m, making him a valuable asset for Girona and a significant investment for Chelsea. Comparisons to Nicolas Jackson further highlight Dovbyk’s potential to make a strong impact at Stamford Bridge.
