With Jose Mourinho revealing that he is going all out for a striker in the summer, we have to look at the strikers that Mourinho can buy. It is also rumoured strongly that Chelsea will look to offload many players who aren’t getting first team action or are not a part of Mourinho’s plan. With all considerations in mind, Chelsea would have good transfer budget to spend. With most of the top strikers in new clubs or having signed contract extensions, we look at possible signings.
3. Diego Costa
The Atletico Madrid centre-forward has had an outstanding season where he has been very prolific in front of goal. One of the main reasons for Atletico topping the La Liga table and still surviving in the Champions League, Diego Costa would not be an economical buy as he is already drawn interest from many teams in Europe.
Aggressive, strong and clinical, Diego Costa has accumulated 25 goals in 30 appearances in the league, competing with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo. Mourinho can make him one of his top priorities as there is a good chance that he will have a good world cup with Spain and Chelsea may need to splash huge amount to cash to lure the striker away from the Madrid club.
