Red Star Belgrade's Richmond Boakye: 'No pressure to impress Chelsea'

Red Star Belgrade's Richmond Boakye says that he does not feel under pressure to play well against Arsenal in the Europa League, despite alleged interest from Chelsea.

Striker Richmond Boakye has insisted that he is fully focused on playing well for Red Star Belgrade, despite alleged interest from Chelsea.

The Blues are said to have sent scouts to watch Boakye against Arsenal in the Europa League last month, and the same could occur on Thursday evening with Red Star facing the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.

However, despite the links to Stamford Bridge, the much-travelled forward has claimed that he is not putting himself under any extra pressure to impress Antonio Conte.

The 24-year-old told Novosti: "If I am destined to play for Chelsea then I will join them.

"I won't feel under pressure to perform even if they are watching me. I'm playing well for Red Star, and let's see who wants me. I'm enjoying my football, and playing as well as I can."

The Ghanaian international has scored 13 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions this season.
