Stamford Bridge side still want Anfield forward.
Chelsea are reportedly readying a fresh bid for long term target Luis Suarez with French source Le10Sport claiming that Jose Mourinho is keen to land the Liverpool forward in January.
The £55m rated could well be the ideal man to strengthen the Blues attack though Liverpool will fight tooth and nail to keep hold of their star performer.
Mourinho was left exasperated by his side’s display away at Newcastle United on the weekend and there is no denying that his current crop of striking talents are simply not producing the goods, the aforementioned Ba, Fernando Torres, Andre Schurrle and Samuel Eto’o managing just three Premier League goals between them this season, and as such the Chelsea boss will surely be handed a significant transfer war-chest to help resolve this ‘problem area’.
Jose Mourinho has been linked with a long list of potential striker signings but Suarez is now certainly the Portuguese manager’s number one target, not least because the Liverpool man will not be cup tied from Champions League action, a tournament the lethal forward is sure to be on competing in.
Another tick in Suarez’s column comes in the knowledge that the Liverpool man is a proven Premier League goal-scorer, the forward having netted a healthy total of 44 goals in 79 top tier starts.
