According to a report from Football.London, Chelsea have set their sights on 20-year-old Florian Wirtz from Bayer Leverkusen as a potential replacement for Mason Mount. This follows after the Blues accepted an offer for Mount, with the English playmaker set to undergo a medical this week.

Writz’s Remarkable Rise In Bundesliga Last Season Despite Injuries 

Regarded as one of the most promising talents in Europe, German attacker Florian Wirtz successfully recovered from his ACL injury sustained early last season and made the most out of his appearances. Despite the setback, Wirtz impressively found the back of the net four times and provided eight assists in 25 appearances across all competitions.

The young talent from Pulheim showcased his ability to orchestrate attacks from central areas, boasting averages of 2.3 key passes, 2.8 dribbles, and 1.1 tackles per game in the Bundesliga. Moreover, he also displayed accuracy in his passing game, completing 78.5% of his attempted passes in the German top flight (stats via whoscored).

Writz’s contract at the BayArena doesn’t expire before the summer of 2027, so the German club are reluctant to sell him. Leverkusen have stated that they wish to hold on to their rising star until 2024, so the Blues would have to make an enticing offer if they wish to acquire his services this summer.

Should Pochettino Bring Him To Chelsea?

Wirtz demonstrates exceptional skill in creating space for himself to take shots on goal and maintains remarkable composure when finishing in front of opponents’ nets. As a German playmaker, he possesses an outstanding vision, enabling him to deliver impressive passes and create brilliant plays through the centre. Additionally, Wirtz combines excellent ball control with his speed and agility to surpass defenders even in tight areas.

His arrival would enhance the competition within Chelsea‘s attacking department, making him an ideal replacement for Mason Mount. At just 20 years old, Wirtz has significant room for development and the potential to become one of Europe’s finest attackers.

Wirtz is already at a level where he could make sporadic appearances in Mauricio Pochettino’s match-day squad. If Chelsea is willing to exercise patience in his progression, he could be a future Premier League star. Wirtz is undeniably a prospect worth keeping an eye on, and his signing would be an excellent acquisition for the West London club this year.
