Chelsea made opening bid for in-demand Championship sensation

By | January 29, 2019

Chelsea have launched an opening bid for highly-rated Bristol City youngster Antoine Semenyo, who is currently on loan at Newport County, where he has scored six goals in 31 matches.

The Premier League club may lose their 18-year-old forward Callum Hudson-Odoi to German giants Bayern Munich this month, who are preparing to launch a £40 million bid.

According to The Daily Mail, Chelsea have bid £1 million for the 19-year-old Bristol City star, who would be placed into the Under-23 squad at Stamford Bridge.

Antoine Semenyo has just one appearance for his parent club Bristol City, which came in the final league match of last campaign in a 3-2 loss to Sheffield United.

It remains to be seen if the Championship side will allow the teenager leave for the English giants while the Blues are on the verge of losing Callum Hudson-Odoi to Bayern Munich and Chelsea are also desperate to send Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid.

After the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain, it was clear that the Spaniard would leave and now it is only matter of time when the Spaniard will sign for the arch-rivals of his former side Real Madrid.
