Ex-Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has urged his former side to match Newcastle United’s offer for Real Sociedad forward Alexander Isak.
Barring any late twists, the Magpies look set to finish the £63million signing after their bid was accepted on Wednesday.
The Blues are on the hunt for a recent forward and have recently been linked with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“What an excellent player [Isak] is,” Cundy told talkSPORT. “I even have to say now, I might not be unhappy if Chelsea signed him in any respect. He’s plenty of money, he’s had plenty of moves considering his age and he hasn’t quite done it, but I believe he’s an absolute superstar within the making.
“I believe it’s an enormous, daring move. It’s top-end. He’s value it for my part. Bags of pace, he’s physical – about 6ft 4in, quick, he’s had a troublesome time with injuries but it is a proper player, this kid.”
