Chelsea internally discussing Mathys Tel swoop

Premier League heavyweights Chelsea are reportedly contemplating a summer move for 19-year-old Bayern Munich attacking prodigy Mathys Tel.

According to Simon Phillips on his Substack channel, Mathy Tel is the subject of interest from Chelsea. The Blues are scouring the market for a striker in the summer transfer window despite the Marc Guiu capture. The 19-year-old Bayern Munich attacking prodigy has thus emerged as a target for the West London club.

How has Mathys Tel fared at Bayern Munich?

Mathys Tel has established himself as one of the best young prospects in the Bundesliga since joining Bayern Munich from Stade Rennais in July 2022. A native of Sarcelles, the Frenchman passed through the academies at JS Villiers-le-Bel, Paris FC, AS Jeunesse Aubervilliers, and Montrouge FC 92 before graduating from the youth division at Stade Rennais.

The 19-year-old has turned out 69 times thus far for Bayern Munich, chipping in with 16 goals and six assists. 2023/24 was Mathys Tel’s best campaign for the Bundesliga giants as he contributed to 16 strikes in less than 1,500 minutes of game time across 41 appearances in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Mathys Tel’s progress at Bayern Munich has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. Premier League bigwigs, in particular, have been keen on signing the French attacking prodigy from the Bundesliga club, with the latest report linking him with Chelsea.

London calling?

Chelsea’s interest in Mathys Tel is understandable. While the Blues are bringing Marc Guiu from Barcelona in the summer transfer window, they want another striker to hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge and compete with Nicolas Jackson for the first-choice centre-forward berth.

While Tel is still young, he can be a long-term solution in the final third for Chelsea. The report by Simon Phillips has suggested that the Blues are internally discussing a summer move for the 19-year-old Bayern Munich attacking sensation. However, they also have other options on their wishlist.

Recent reports have linked Chelsea with world-class strikers like Alexander Isak. So, it will be interesting to see who becomes the top candidate to bolster the West London club’s offensive department in the summer transfer window.
