Stamford Bridge side earmark moves for top notch goal machines.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho seemingly opted to keep faith with the striking options in his armoury for the remainder of the current campaign as he instead sought to strengthen other areas of his squad in January, however The Sun claim that the Stamford Bridge side have drawn up a three-man summer wish-list to resolve the West London club’s ‘problem-area’.

Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o have scored a combined total of 11 goals from their collective 41 Premier League appearances, that represents just a quarter of the club’s total top tier goal tally.
Therefore it’s no surprise that Mourinho would look to address this issue by targeting three world-class strikers who would all be top notch additions who would more ably lead the Chelsea attack.
Bayern Munich forward Mario Mandzukic is perhaps the most cost-effective option of the three named by this source and the Serbian international could well be considering his options given that Robert Lewandowski is set to move to the Allianz Arena in the summer.
The Borussia Dortmund goal machine’s presence will almost certainly lead to Mandzukic playing a lesser role at the Bavarian club and a move to Chelsea would surely tempt the 27 year old.
Mandzukic has been hugely successful since moving from Wolfsburg to Bayern Munich 18 months ago, netting 35 goals in 67 appearances in all competitions.
