Top 5 Strikers Chelsea Could Sign This 2021
So here we will look at the Top five strikers Chelsea could sign this January. Other targets which are more difficult but we should also look at.
The Crystal Palace man almost joined Arsenal this summer. However, the move never went through as Arsenal decided to pursue Nicolas Pepe instead. This has left Zaha frustrated at Palace and he might want to leave soon again as soon as the Blues get their transfer ban lifted. It has also helped that he has been on fire for them this season, scoring 7 goals and making 6 assists.
Yes, we see the connection now. English, young, energetic and impressive. He certainly fills all the ticks for Frank Lampard and he is a lethal goal scorer. At Bournemouth, he used to regularly convert whatever little chances he got. He has now moved to Newcastle where he has been extremely good with not just scoring goals but overall centre forward play. Should he come to Chelsea, he will have to fight it out with Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner.
Dembele was strongly linked with Chelsea and Manchester United during the winter transfer window but a move to the Premier League never materialized. Seeing how the Red Devils have already got their hands on Odion Ighalo, Chelsea should waste no time in wrapping up a deal for Dembele. The striker has registered 16 goals and 2 assists in 27 Ligue 1 appearances this season. At just 23, he is proving to be striker of immense potential, having also enjoyed success with Celtic.
The Argentine’s wife and agent, Wanda Nara raised controversy once again by telling the Parc des Princes chiefs that the striker wants to return to Italy. Hearing this, an enraged board room decided to completely terminate Icardi’s deal and not activate the buy-back clause they had in place. This was a brilliant chance for Chelsea to swoop in and take the 27-year-old off of the hands of Inter.
However, despite moving to PSG his career looks shaky there and he might want to move soon again.
Real Madrid have given up on their Serbian number nine after just over 18 months at the Stamford Bridge. Eintracht Frankfurt banked €60m off of his sale but Chelsea could sign him for much less, given his circumstances. Zinedine Zidane has completely shunned the forward from his starting lineup, only allowing him to feature as late substitutes or cup draws. A striker of Jovic’s calibre is destined for greater needs and Chelsea could offer him a lucrative escape route.
Chelsea’s current striker situation:
Chelsea are currently employing three centre-forwards in Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner. While Abraham has emerged as the future number nine of Chelsea, it is likely that the other big forward will be moved on after this season. Giroud was eager to leave in January with Antonio Conte waiting at Inter with open arms. Werner needs time to settle but is most likely to play as a wide forward.
