Revealed: Chelsea Summer Striker Shortlist

By on March 8, 2014


According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea’s summer striker shortlist has been revealed.

Chelsea’s strikers have been in far from prolific form this season, with continuous injuries and goal droughts frustrating Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba to date.

The first name on Chelsea’s list is Diego Costa, the star Atletico Madrid striker that has led his side deep into the La Liga title race.

The Spanish(ish) international has scored 21 goals and 3 assists in only 26 appearances this year and has frequently been linked with Chelsea this year.

Another name on Chelsea’s shortlist, also frequently linked with the Blues, is AS Monaco’s striker Radamel Falcao. The player has been linked with the club for a number of years, and despite a recent long-term injury, the player still remains on the mind of the Chelsea hierarchy.

Finally, Chelsea have been recently linked with AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, and it is being reported that the Italian takes up the final place on Chelsea’s striker shortlist.

What do you think? Is this a credible list for Chelsea? Which striker do you think Chelsea should purchase?
