Why Chelsea should look to Awoniyi for an attacking answer after 64 minutes, 3 shots, and 1 spectacular goal.

According to reports, Chelsea tried to sign Taiwo Awoniyi during the recently closed summer transfer window, but the Nigerian player turned down the offer.

In a stunning performance for the Super Eagles against Sao Tome and Principe, Taiwo Awoniyi of Nottingham Forest gave Chelsea reason to consider adding him as a prospective signing.
Awoniyi, a youngster who is supposedly on Chelsea’s radar, displayed his talent all game long. Nicolas Jackson, who Chelsea had already acquired from Villarreal during the transfer season, was anticipated to convince the Tricky Trees to sign Awoniyi based on his recent performances.

The 26-year-old Nigerian almost gave the 2013 AFCON champions the lead in the seventh minute, but a Sao Tome defender stopped him.

Awoniyi’s skill was on display in the second half as he benefited from Kelechi Iheanacho’s assist and scored an incredible goal past Ronaldo Silva to give the Super Eagles a victory over Sao Tome.
Due to his success at the club level, the young Nigerian attacker has made history by becoming the first Nigerian to score seven goals in seven straight English Premier League games.

This outstanding performance emphasizes the necessity for Chelsea to strengthen their offensive alternatives with his services and reinvigorate the front line’s Didier Drogba-like attitude.
However, it’s important to remember that a prior rumor claimed that Awoniyi rejected Chelsea’s offer to sign him because he wishes to honor the terms of his current, extended contract with Nottingham Forest until 2027.

Chelsea may need to make a significant offer, perhaps even one that exceeds the sum Nottingham paid to buy Awoniyi from Union Berlin, if they are keen to obtain his services. Evangelos Marinakis and Sokratis Kominakis have a chance to profit from his selling in this circumstance.
