New Chelsea boss issues January transfer demand

vardy721Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are still adjusting to the news that Jose Mourinho has left, to be replaced by Guus Hiddink, and the Blues fans are discussing their views whilst sinking a few drinks.

Hiddink, taking charge of Chelsea until the end of the season, is already starting to make moves in West London as The Sun state the Dutchman has demanded that the club purchase an English striker in January.

With current striking trio Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao struggling, Hiddink has put Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and West Brom’s Saido Berahino top of his transfer wish-list.

Jose Mourinho was reluctant to splash the cash on Vardy, who tops the scoring charts, and Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has remained adamant that the English international will not be leaving the club in the new year.

A more likely option would be 22-year-old Berahino, who has fallen out of favour at West Brom following his behaviour in the summer. A potentially toxic player though, he could add more problems to Chelsea’s morale.

Chelsea fans, who do you need to sign in January? Let us know in the comments below!
