At the start of the season, Chelsea fans would’ve laughed off talk of an ageing Graziano Pelle joining the Blues’ frontline with the quality already in their squad but right now, he looks a sensible purchase.
Blues supporters have to realise that times have quickly changed with the club being in desperate need of players who actually possess a burning spirit to succeed.
In fairness to 30-year-old Italian international Pelle, he has looked an incredible difficult customer to handle in his time in the Premier League so far with the former Feyenoord man having scored 18 league goals in 49 appearances since 2014.
What’s more, Chelsea and Jose Mourinho in particular has forged a career out of playing off a big target man in Didier Drogba so replacing the uninterested Diego Costa with this man in the starting line-up could prove a left-field signing that just may come to fruition.Like what the TT have on offer?
