Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are rubbing their hands in excitement after hearing the latest gossip, which suggests the Blues lead the chase for a highly-rated addition.
TalkSport, reporting via Sky Italia, state that Chelsea lead the race for the services of Boca Juniors striker Jonathan Calleri, who is expected to move to Europe in January.
Inter Milan and Stoke City are also keen on the signature of the Argentine talent but Chelsea’s quest to reform their attacking line, in the midst of a woeful start to the Premier League campaign.
Chelsea currently sit 16th in the Premier League table, 13 points behind the top-four already, and their strikers have been in poor form.
Loic Remy has failed to make an impression, whilst Radamel Falcao is enduring another poor season in England and Diego Costa has failed to replicate his form from last season.
Chelsea fans, is Calleri the right striker for you to add to your squad? Let us know in the comments below!
