Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to completely overhaul his Blues attack with four strikers linked with Stamford Bridge exits according to the Guardian.

Mourinho is ready to offload Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku whilst Samuel Eto’o is unlikely to be offered a new contract when his current short term deal expires this summer.

Having seen his side draw a blank at lowly Crystal Palace Mourinho is understandably concerned that his Premier League, and perhaps Champions League, title challenges will fail to come to fruition primarily because he doesn’t possess a prolific goal-scorer leading his Blues attack.

Ba, Torres and Eto’o have scored a total of 15 Premier League goals between them in a combined total of 58 appearances and the lion’s share of the goal scoring burden has therefore fallen on creative midfielders like Eden Hazard and Oscar.

The decision to loan out Lukaku, who has netted 12 in 21 Premier League starts for Everton, to the Toffees has perhaps back-fired on Mourinho but still the Portuguese boss doesn’t appear to see the 20 year old as part of his long term plans and decent offers for his services will be considered.

Chelsea may struggle to find buyers who are willing to fork out decent sums for misfiring Spaniard Torres and bit-part player Ba.
