The latest chat on the constant merry go round of transfer rumours throughout the Premier League is an interesting one indeed. Manchester City’s Talisman Sergio Aguero, scorer of their most famous goal in history - and probably forever - has been linked to Premier League Champions Chelsea.
Reports have recently surfaced via British Media juggernauts Sky Sports suggesting the Stamford Bridge outfit have ‘serious and strong interest’ in the City striker. No doubt Chelsea need to replace want away striker Diego Costa and as a player who has netted 122 goals in 181 Premier League appearances since joining from Atletico Madrid, Aguero would definitely fit the bill.
However would Pep Guardiola really sell to the current Champions in a switch that would surely strengthen the London club significantly? There is the suggestion that Aguero may not settle for a joint striking role alongside new Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus at City and so could be very interested in a move away. Although if he was allowed to leave, the hierarchy at City would be seriously questioned were they to sell to a rival.
So how will these rumours affect Aguero on the Football index should the stories persist? As a notoriously poor investment on the index with an awful buzz return for a player of his calibre, would there be any change in his fortunes should he make the switch down south? Sitting at around £2.65 before the reports surfaced, the Argentine has enjoyed a small spike, hitting heights of £2.95 in the aftermath of initial speculation.
If we compare his price to that of Costa and other strikers who have been heavily linked to Chelsea it would seem there is certainly room to grow if the talk continues. Last season, Costa was the blues main man and spent the season around the £4 mark picking up numerous buzz wins along the way – his returns were in the top 5 in terms of dividends throughout last season.
Looking forward, Romelu Lukaku sat above £5 as it seemed he was destined for the Bridge before Manchester United pipped them to the signing of the big Belgian. Alvaro Morata has also been mentioned as Costa’s replacement and he too has hit heights of £5 plus on the back of this. So, should there be any more solidity applied to this rumour there could definitely be money to be made. Whether that be on a quick flip as speculation grows or a hold in the hope he signs and his buzz fortunes changes at Chelsea.
However, in all reality the rumour is probably more drivel made up to fill the back pages of newspapers and airtime. Pep surely knows better than to strengthen a side he will be looking to topple this season and should Chelsea come calling they will most likely be told to look elsewhere.
We can also look at his potential on the upcoming Performance Buzz, where it would seem likely he might excel. However, going on last season's player rankings courtesy of Squawka.com, we can see that despite piling in the goals once again, he could only muster 66th place overall.
As far as an investment on the Football Index goes – our advice would be to steer clear from this one in general, however that would change instantly were he to move to Chelsea or at the very least, rumours grow a lot stronger.
