Chelsea prioritise January swoop for £25m striker

GriezmannChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling a bit worse for wear today, after they sunk many drinks in commiseration yesterday following a shock defeat to Bournemouth.

The Mirror says that the Blues are determined to put things right in the January transfer window and have put Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann on top of their wish-list.

Chelsea’s interest comes on the back of poor performances from their current striking contingent, with Deigo Costa falling out of favour, Loic Remy failing to impress and Radamel Falcao continuing to falter.

24-year-old Griezmann would automatically become first-choice at Stamford Bridge but Atletico will not be keen to part ways with the striker midway through their quest to snatch the La Liga title back off Barcelona.

If a pursuit of Griezmann is unsuccessful, it’s stated Chelsea will rival Tottenham Hotspur in the market for the signature of 22-year-old Saido Berahino.

Our regulars are unsure what to make of this, as they believe there’s no chance of landing Griezmann in January and do not believe Berahino in the answer to their problems.
