Chelsea wanted to sign Watford striker Isaac Success, admits mentor

Chelsea were keen to sign Watford striker Isaac Success in the past, it has been confirmed.

BJ Foundation boss Douglas Idahosa revealed Chelsea chief Michael Emenalo wanted to sign Success before he moved to Granada.

Idahosa told allnigeriasoccer.com: “Chelsea were interested in signing Success, they said the board first have to hold a meeting to approve the transfer.

“They wanted to pay 1.2 million pounds, that range.

“Michael Emenalo contacted our agent and a four-year deal was offered.

“They were slow, they were asking us to hold on and we couldn't wait.

“Granada were faster and we finalized everything with them within three days."
