Owls boss Brian Laws has made an approach for the powerful forward who will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge to gain first-team experience.

Sahar is back in the reserves at Chelsea after a loan spell at QPR ended with injury problems - but he is keen for a second shot at the Championship.

Sahar had a sensational first 3/4 of last season where his rise was meterioric. Since then he has really struggled, and this season his form has been very very poor. The lad needs games again to get his level to where it can be, the talent is there and now we need to bring it out again, could be a good move for him if he gets the games.

Agree he's been pretty poor, and dont think he'll ever cut it for the first team tbh. Just doesnt read the game well enough. Wish him well though.

He still can do, he is still very young, and has a good couple of years development ahead of him still. He has hit a rut and he needs to get out of it. From what i saw of him in the reserves last week he is trying too hard at the moment.

With the quality of the team , it would be extremely unlikely that someone like Sahar wiould make it as regular starter, given the status of the club and the quality of strikers in the world available. Just not good enough.

It depends doesn't it, if you judge any 18 year old striker, even the best then they are going to come up short against the likes of Drogba, Anelka and Shevchenko. Doesn't mean with the right development they can't make that level, they certainly own't be at that level at 18.

He may develop into a world Class striker, but from what I've seen of him, that 'instinct ' Analka, Shvchenko have can't be taught and he doesnt have it in my book. Probably end up at Charlton , or West Ham at tops.

He did have it, he had the promise of being a strong player who can hold the ball up and have a wicked shot on him as well as the skill. His peak came in scoring for the Israel full team, that was when we saw the absolute Best of Sahar, unfortunately since then it has gone missing for whatever reason.

Injury?

Yes he did suffer from injury just when he was about to start a loan spell with QPR, scored a couple of goals for them in a pre season friendly, they got excited and then he got injured and never managed to recover from it.

But to be honest his lack of form started before that at the end of last season....

Personally, i still think he can make it, time is on his side. A final descision won't be made on him for another 2 or 3 years at least. But the next year is going to be crucial for him....

I am certain people were saying Drogba could not compare at age 18 to the likes of Cantona, Maradona and Pele.

Drogba was a VERY late developer too.

The club have been talking a lot recently about keeping players on longer (unless of course it is obvious they are NEVER going to improve) and that they are reserving final judgement now till 21/22 . Which is the right thing to do to make sure that the young players get the right development.
