As reported by West London Sport, Jose Mourinho has claimed he’ll not be buying any more striking reinforcements following Diego Costa’s injury, insisting he has enough in both Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao in reserve.
While the Chelsea manager has to say this of course, some of our Blues regulars are slightly concerned that their club just simply aren’t the same prospect without Costa in their starting eleven.
We saw in the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal that both Remy and Falcao lack the killer instinct that Costa possesses, despite all of the players still regaining their fitness in pre-season of course.
Dispelling the myth that big money striking reinforcements flop at Stamford Bridge, Diego Costa started last season like a train but given his temperament and injury troubles, Blues fans know they could have to get used to the Spanish international being out of the team on several occasions this term.
The full expectation is that the Blues will move for Baba Rahman and possibly Everton’s John Stones to conclude their summer transfer business but to appease the Chelsea supporters in the tavern, we’re discussing some of the strikers who are still available and could do a job for Jose Mourinho.
With available strikers running out and fast, here are five to give Mourinho some food for thought before the closure of the window on September 1st.
And lets be honest, Jose Mourinho has gone back on his word plenty of times in the past hasn’t he?
