According to reports, Chelsea FC are ready to offload Brazilian midfielder Oscar in summer. Jose Mourinho has eyed West Ham Uniteda s Enner Valencia as a possible replacement of Oscar. Liverpool and Juventus are supposedly interested in roping in the Brazilian midfielder.
Oscar has not been able to cope up with Jose Mourinhoa s style of play. The Portuguese manager wants fast paced players in his team who can work hard. The Brazilian has been the most subbed player in the Premier League this season.
It is believed that the Chelsea manager is impressed with the Ecuadorian midfieldera s performance this season. The attacker arrived at West Ham last summer for A?12m from Mexican club CF Pachuca. Valencia has been a regular member of the Hammersa first team. The midfielder has scored 4 goals this season and assisted thrice.
Oscar has had an average outing in this season for the Premier League leaders. He has failed to perform as per his potential and if rumours are to be believed his manager is not at all thrilled with his performance.
It is a known fact that Mourinho encourages hard work over creativity. For similar reasons Juan Mata was sold to Manchester United a season back and Willian was his replacement in the Chelsea squad.
It will be interesting to see, where Oscar finally lands up. Mourinho may not sell a quality player like Oscar to league rivals. In that case Italy maybe his next destination.
