It’s been a tough few months for Chelsea who recently said goodbye for the second time to manager Jose Mourinho. The special one who finally departed the club on mutual terms had been struggling with increasing pressure during his final few weeks in charge as he tried his hardest to churn out some of those all-important results. Unfortunately with a relegation position looming drastic changes needed to be made and now with the January transfer window open it’s the perfect time for the blues to do some of that all-important team rebuilding. The transfer window closes on 1st February and once you’ve had a chance to play the popular Football Star slot at Euro Palace you can then pick out all the players that caught your eye.
Amongst the rumours comes news that Chelsea could be looking to place a bid of £30 million for that of AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca. The blues certainly need more options for their strike force and the 29 year-old Colombian forward would go a long way in helping them secure some strength up front.
Talking of strength up front it’s no surprise to see the Chelsea side eyeing up quality strikers up and down the league. And its Leicester’s home grown strike sensation Jamie Vardy that Guus Hiddink is rumoured to be extremely interested in signing. He has broken the Premier League record by scoring in eleven consecutive league matches and has already netted 15 goals so far this season.
But if it’s simply goals that Chelsea will be a quick fix solution to all their problems then acquiring Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Alex Teixeira would be beneficial. They have already bid £30 million for the Brazilian who has managed to score 26 goals so far this season in the Ukrainian Premier League and other competitions.
It’s not just quick footed Brazilian’s and experienced English strikers that Hiddink and Chelsea have their eye on. There are plenty of European football star names that are being thrown about including this talented French forward. But with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain all in the market to sign the 24 year-old and with Atletico Madrid pushing up their release clause to a whopping £75 million it may be stretching Chelsea a little too far.
