Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye has openly admitted he would be open to joining Chelsea.

Richmond Boakye

The 24 year old Ghana international, was reportedly scouted by the Blues during last night’s Europa League clash with the gunners at the Emirates Stadium, and apparently in the reverse fixture in Serbia a fortnight ago.

Boakye is said to be a January transfer target for Blues head coach Antonio Conte as he seeks to bolster the cover for club record signing Alvaro Morata, having missed out to Tottenham Hotspur for Spanish forward Fernando Llorente in the last transfer window.

Conte is said to have doubts over Michy Batshuayi and wants to bring in an alternative option.
Boakye had a brief run under the Italian boss at Serie A champions Juventus, but was unable to establish himself in Turin.

According to the Evening Standard, Boakye said: “I am playing well, so we’ll see who will contact me.
“If I’m going to play for Chelsea, then I’ll go. I’m having fun and I’m playing at my best.”

The in-form forward has started the 2017/18 campaign with an impressive 18 goals for Red Star.
