Chelsea, Tottenham, Newcastle United vying for Rayan Cherki

Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United are reportedly keen on signing the French midfielder Rayan Cherki.

According to HITC, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United are looking to sign Rayan Cherki. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been compared to Eden Hazard because of his playing style.

Cherki is an exceptional dribbler, and he will help create goalscoring opportunities in the final third. The midfielder has eight goals and three assists in all competitions for Lyon this season. Chelsea could certainly use someone like him, especially with players like Mykhailo Mudryk struggling to perform at a high level. The Blues hold a long-term interest in him.

Similarly, Tottenham need more depth in the final third as well. The 20-year-old midfielder could compete with James Maddison for a starting berth. He is versatile enough to slot into the wide areas as well. Meanwhile, Newcastle are looking to put together a formidable squad capable of competing for major trophies, and the 20-year-old will be a future investment for them.

All three clubs have the financial muscle to get the deal done, and it remains to be seen where Cherki ends up. He has the physical and technical attributes to thriving English football, and he could be a key player for all three clubs with the right guidance.

Cherki will want to join a top team

Chelsea are currently without a manager, and they must look to finalise an appointment first before planning for transfers. The 20-year-old midfielder will not want to join an unstable project, and Chelsea must look to bring in a quality manager in order to attract elite talents.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United missed out on European qualification, and they might not be a very attractive destination for the player. On the other hand, Tottenham will be competing in the UEFA Europa league, and that could give them an edge over the rivals in the transfer race.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can agree on a reasonable fee with the French club and get the deal done. Cherki has the potential to develop into a top class player and he will want to join a club where he will be able to fulfil his emissions in the coming seasons.
