Chelsea eye massive £50m striker bid

Paco AlcacerChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are stunned and excited to hear of a huge striker swooped planned for next year, which would equal their highest price ever paid for a player.

The Blues were said to be targeting Valencia striker Paco Alcacer in the summer but the 22-year-old penned a new deal with the La Liga outfit, which tied him down with the Champions League outfit for a further five years.

Chelsea’s interest remains though as reports this weekend stated that Jose Mourinho sent scouts to watch the Spaniard in action during a 3-0 victory over Malaga and is ready to launch a move in the January transfer window– though they may have to match his £50m release clause.

The defending Premier League champions have struggled vastly this season, securing just three Premier League wins in the opening nine fixtures to leave the Blues way behind in the title chase.

Diego Costa has been unable to replicate the form he showed last season, whilst Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao have also failed to impress this term.

Chelsea fans, is Alcacer a striker you want to see at Stamford Bridge? Let us know in the comments below!
