Viktor Gyokeres plans on Staying According to Fabrizio

Chelsea may find it difficult to convince Viktor Gyokeres to leave Sporting Lisbon in January. He plans to stay and not leave for England.


There is a release clause in place for Viktor Gyokeres that Chelsea and other teams can activate.
But, transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano stated on Kick that the striker intends to remain at Sporting come January.

Gyokeres has been Ruben Amorim’s finest player this season, so it would be a tremendous boost.

With 17 goals in 20 games, the 25-year-old leads Sporting in scoring.

Gyokeres has been monitored by Chelsea, but Romano claims he is not considering leaving in January.

Regarding the Sweden international, he stated: “Sporting made a €24 million investment, and as a result, they now have one of the finest attackers in Europe in Viktor Gyokeres. He’s getting goals and dishing out help. Yes, Viktor Gyokeres is quite popular, but not in January. I’ve been informed that the player intends to remain at Sporting come January.

Viktor Gyokeres Signing

“Taking a plane to Lisbon and paying Gyokeres’ €100 million (£86.6 million) release clause is the only way to sign him during the January transfer window.” I believe it will be challenging to pay that kind of money. In the summer, Gyokeres will be someone to keep an eye on.

It doesn’t seem insurmountable. Despite their difficulties, Chelsea has managed to entice several notable players, such as Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez, to the team in recent transfer windows.

It appears, though, that Gyokeres will choose to remain at Sporting for the remainder of the campaign, which makes sense.

The player, who was formerly with Coventry City, hasn’t been there long and is now playing well. You might want to hold off on making any decisions just now.
Therefore, Chelsea could need to search elsewhere. Having said that, a lot may happen before the January transfer window closes, so nothing should be completely ruled out.
