Top 5 Strikers Who Could Be Perfect For Chelsea: Featuring Ex-Manchester United Goal Poacher And A Gabonese Speedster

Goals, that win teams games in the game of football, is something Chelsea have been lacking big time during the ongoing turbulence. Nothing seems to be going right for them, and goals are a subset of the element ‘nothing’. There have been instances in the past when even though a side doesn’t have the best of defences, they tend to outscore with the help of the attacking riches that they possess up front. And Chelsea, without a shadow of doubt, do have glittering attacking riches in their ranks but it’s not going right in any manner.

Diego Costa has been shambolic, he’s getting suspended, and if not that, he’s getting injured or playing as if he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Radamel Falcao has been a disappointment, quite a bit like how he fared during his stint at Old Trafford while Loic Remy doesn’t seem to give the impression of being the kind of goal getting striker that the Blues desperately need at the moment.

And it’s been in tatters, to be honest. And rightly so, the need for a goal-getting forward is dire. Someone who is good with his back to goal, to bring others into play and just as good when facing the goal, to score. And here are 5 strikers who would be fit for Chelsea to sign this winter.


5. Jamie Vardy: Leicester City

On the cusp of shattering Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of scoring goals in 11 consecutive games, Jamie Vardy has been nothing short of a revelation. A reason for Leicester’s flying start to the campaign, Vardy leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with 12 goals. Vardy is 28 and Claudio Ranieri has made it clear that the club who buy him would’ve shell out a good amount of money to land him. Vardy’s specialty happens to be surprising work rate and his willingness to run around like a dog for the entire game, pressing the opposition and harrying defenders.

Much like Diego Costa, who never lets defenders have a moment of peace, Vardy is one hell of a maverick too. He’ll always keep the defenders on their toes and will try to do something or the other for his team to score. He’s got an exceptional burst of pace too, allowing him to race past defenders in straight forward duels as if they aren’t there. What remains to be seen is whether the Englishman would be good enough to play for a bigger club or not.
