5. Callum Wilson

Chelsea are keen on a new number nine. They looked at Bournemouth’s striker Callum Wilson as an ideal number nine forward. The Englishman knows the league inside out having always played in England.

He is still young and at the age of 26; he is hitting his prime in the game. He has scored close to 10 goals this season in the league already; a number more than Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud combined for Chelsea in the league this season.

He has been approached by Chelsea but the problem remains with Bournemouth selling him. Initially it was thought that the Cherries would charge a massive sum of 50 million pounds for the player and Chelsea will have to negotiate hard to bring it down. However, latest reports are confirming that Bournemouth have set their price for the player somewhere close to 75 million pounds!

4. Jamie Vardy

The  Leicester City forward is 30 plus now. However, he is a big-match player. He has a fantastic temperament as a striker. He is a player who likes to score and finish. He was previously linked with a move to Arsenal last year but the move never materialized. It is now being thought that Chelsea are keen to add him to their ranks and wait out with Giroud and Vardy until the summer when they can take a better decision on whom to sign as their primary number nine.

The former English forward is a dangerous hitman with an excellent goal scoring record against the top 6 and would be a good addition as a player in the squad but how effective he will be in leading the Chelsea team as a primary number nine and for how long could be a factor that might play against Chelsea signing him on a permanent move. He has been in imperious form for Leicester this season and they will not let him go easily.

3. Timo Werner

The RB Leipzig man is a Germany international. He is an experienced goal scorer in the Bundesliga, Champions League and the international circuit; all at a very young age.

He is being chased by teams like Liverpool as well. He is a brilliant player but will definitely cost a lot which might push off Chelsea in pursuit of other strikers. Moreover, Werner is not a hard holding number nine, the kind of player Chelsea like.

2. Edinson Cavani- PSG

Chelsea actually have a good chance of signing PSG striker Edinson Cavani in January. Cavani has been rumored to be unhappy at PSG since Neymar arrived. There was that incident last to last season when Cavani wanted to take the penalty but Neymar took it off him. An argument ensued and it’s said that the pair do not get along.

In-fact, Cavani recently admitted his bad relationship with Neymar.

Speaking to French media company RMC Sport, Cavani said: “It is true that there was a problem at that time with Neymar. “We spoke about it together – I told him that I was the first to want him to win things individually.

“However, I told him there was a condition and that was that he must put the squad’s collective objectives first.”

Cavani is yet another old striker though, at 32-years-old.

But Cavani is a different class and he would be a huge signing if Chelsea got him. The Blues need to make a statement signing in January and Cavani could make the difference to an young Lampard team.

1. Moussa Dembele (Lyon)

The striker from Lyon is Chelsea’s number one target. He has already played for a big club like PSG. He was on loan at Celtic where he was a brilliant player as well. Now he is playing for Lyon where he is brilliant but the team are struggling

Chelsea has already made an official bid for him. Lyon have however, turned it down and made it clear they do not want to sell him. However, the player has remained tight lipped on the matter so far. He might soon be sold though as Chelsea are relentless suitors.

Dembele is an young striker and a perfect option for Chelsea. He is youthful, vibrant and fast. He is strong and a bit of the old Drogba mould which has really excited Frank Lampard.

Chelsea will have to negotiate hard with Aulas, the Lyon president to get their man. Moreover, for Chelsea they have young Tammy Abraham who is in charge. He is leading the line, high on confidence and is scoring good goals. However, once Dembele comes in it will be a tough choice for Lampard to see who will start the match as both strikers will not like sitting on the bench at this point of their career.
