Ipswich Town line up permanent move for Omari Hutchinson

Ipswich Town are eager to sign Omari Hutchinson on a permanent deal in the summer, while Chelsea are still deciding the forward’s future.

According to TEAMtalk, Ipswich Town would like to sign a permanent deal with Omari Hutchinson in the summer. The 20-year-old has shone for the Tractor Boys on their road to Premier League promotion, and Kieran McKenna is eager to keep the forward. However, Chelsea could put them in a tricky spot.

Ipswich Town want Omari Hutchinson

Omari Hutchinson seemed to have lost his way at Chelsea alongside a few others as the club fell into disarray. The 20-year-old, who joined the Blues from London rivals Arsenal, had barely made a mark at Stamford Bridge. But now he might reflect on the decision to join Ipswich on loan as a good one.

Hutchinson took the big gamble of joining newly promoted Championship side Ipswich on loan from Chelsea. There is always the innate danger of going down back into League One. Still, Kieran McKenna has steered them to an improbable promotion to the Premier League and will thank Hutchinson in a big way for his 17 goal contributions during the campaign.

McKenna now wants to sign Omari Hutchinson on a permanent deal from Chelsea, and the report suggests the 20-year-old might prefer to re-sign with the Tractor Boys. It is a straightforward decision for the young forward, who may get a starting role in the Premier League with Ipswich Town next season, something he may not achieve at Chelsea.

Now, should Chelsea indicate their will to sell the attacker, then Ipswich might go ahead and make their bid for the 20-year-old. However, the Blues are still undecided on Hutchinson’s future, as they are reportedly keen to offer him a new contract to cement his place in the team for the long run.

Will Chelsea sell Hutchinson to Ipswich?

Chelsea had some financial issues a few weeks ago. But now it appears they have resolved their PSR-related troubles by selling properties instead of players. Yet, some of the sales of their current stars, especially those homegrown players, might still entice the Blues, who could add to their transfer kitty ahead of the summer.

Hence, they might consider a good enough offer for Hutchinson should Ipswich make a bid. Alternatively, should the 20-year-old agree on satisfactory terms, Chelsea are likely to agree on another loan deal for the attacker, which might end up suiting all parties concerned.
