Just Who Will it (Not) Be?

Just Who Will it (Not) Be?

As the opening of the transfer window fast approaches, transfer speculation is rife as to who the big name striker is that Chelsea are chasing.

Today, delving through the various news sources, we`ve found snippets of information relating to three of our possible targets.

Firstly Edison Cavani, the Uruguayan striker has, reportedly , been the subject of a £45 million offer that Napoli have turned down, could that have come from us?

Secondly, our continued links with the Brazilian sensation that is Neymar, don`t seem ready to come to fruition with the player confirming that he is set to stay at Santos.

Thirdly, if we`re looking towards a slightly cheaper option in Demba Ba then that too could fall on deaf ears with Ba inferring that he`d prefer a switch from Newcastle to Paris St Germain, his boyhood idols.

I say bring back Lukaku, Essiens and Chalobah and we'll be able to compete effectively until the end of the season

As long as we get at least two strikers and a DM to sit alongside Luiz then I will be happy. It can be whoever from the list we have been linked with as they all could do a job for us! With sturridge going we can't just buy one striker we need to have 3 strikers in the squad to give competition to Torres,as at the moment he plays every game and has no players pushing him for a spot plus over relying on one main striker is very dangerous if he is injured. Same goes if we only had two strikers this again if one is injured we will be left with just two and worrying again! This is going to prove to be a very very vital transfer window I believe. Gonna be interesting and hopefully we get all our business done early and not at the bloody 12th hour!

We need to get alcao early in the window, and possibly Schurrle or Wi8llian too - not just for our own team reasons , but it will se the stall to attract Pep as a by-product. If we start to narrow the gap between us and UNited - overtaking City, and becoming the main title challengers .. why would Pep not want the job? We need to determine why November gives Chelsea the heebie-jeebies and eliminate the problem. Several seasons now we have suffeed the "bad moment" .and its cost us dearly

The truth is chelsea will attempt to activate falcao's release clause and will try to sign Villa if we can't get radamel falcao....chelsea will sign just a striker and victor moses will be our 3rd option for the CF its either falcao or villa....while for the DM,nathaniel chalobah will be back and chelsea will only buy another if lampard leaves in for now the only xmas gift we should be xpecting is a striker
27/12/2012 11:28:00
We'll go all out for falcao, but I have me a feeling that we have a striker already in our crosshairs if falcao fails and we'll be left gaping, I think we should recall kalas and KDB, then buy a striker and we can get di miao*
27/12/2012 11:44:00
Atletico are stating how hard they have fough to keep Falcao..... I think we have clinched him
27/12/2012 12:28:00
I'm with DESMOND on this 1 (going all out for Falcao) because we cannot afford to experiment right now, this is just about the most pivotal moment of the club that if we misuse the chance, we could be LiverBlue, and then I'm sure Roman would lose interest altogether (especially with ffp rules trying to prevent the entrance of even more "Romans")
27/12/2012 12:48:00
My guess is gonna be Andre Schurrle.
27/12/2012 12:50:00
@Blue_mel...could you share the link?...i hope its not
27/12/2012 12:53:00
falcao - walcott and willian will join us in january!
27/12/2012 13:29:00
Hate this Poll! Torres MOTM vs Norwich??? WhaT?? Ivanovic has made NO Mistake!! He was perfect!!
27/12/2012 13:30:00
bringing Ake on is a great job, but please Rafa, if you read(I know he's not), bring on Feruz, I don't know why, but I have such a great feeling about that boy,play him when we are 3 or 4 goals up against weaker opposition,every minute will be huge for him.
27/12/2012 13:50:00
i would very surprised if we dont leave Chalobah on loan for the remainder of the season. He wont get much game time here at all and he is coming on leaps and bounds at watford,so i am pretty confident that he will stay there for the whole season. We need him to carry on his development.
27/12/2012 14:16:00
Falcao is going to be at AthL Madrid till the summer,so that's out of the question. He has confirmed that and Athl Management have released statements confirming that (gladdens my heart).
27/12/2012 15:39:00
Fingers crossed,would have to wait till 1st feb 2013,am very certain father Abraham would deliver us a late xmas present
27/12/2012 16:48:00
Just sign Falcao or Villa . I don't see what all this speculating is about. Falcao or Villa.
27/12/2012 17:19:00
The only thing certain now is that sturridge would join liverpool on the 2nd and chelsea would be signing a striker in january and would attempt to conclude business as early as possible. Whoever the striker is is currently uncertain and so 99% of the names we have been linked with are just guess work by the media.
