Alvaro Negredo?

Alvaro Negredo?

Those good folk at the Daily Mail have an interesting rumour for us today.

With Chelsea keen to bolster their strike-force, even more so with Daniel Sturridge set to move to Liverpool as soon as the transfer window creaks open, they`re suggesting that Chelsea are looking at making a £16 million bid for the 27 year old Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo.

Confessing that I know little or nothing about the player, is he Chelsea material or not?

Lewandowski is going to Manu - so they'll have 5 strikers. RvP, Rooney, Chicarito, Welbeck and Lewandowski. In comparison we only have 1 in Torres :-(

and Michu is not a striker, he is more like CAM but deployed by Laudrup as false 9 at Swansea, they could do that due to their style of play, keeping possessions a lot

I don't care whoever, the point is we buy a striker, buy it fast, and he is fit to the quality of the Chelsea Football Club..

If prefer us to sign a younger striker or less known striker as Torres will always be first choice and then a back option until the summer when it looks like we will go for falcao. If it could be done David villa on loan or pato on loan till the seasons end would be ideal,as then we still have lukaku out on loan and furuz might be ready for some first team game time(I wish there lol) also bamford if his loan kicks off

Dave men I get your point but instead I would go for "and" instead of your "or"...if we could get both villa and pato on loan,then that's goodnews for us,we all know villa is a proven goalscorer and pato is same when he is fit.....then get falcao in the summer since it doesn't seem we can get him in january...would have loved el sharaawy though but milan won't sell,I don't rate schurle at all,I even prefer torres to schurle

I think we should get him if we don't have any other option, I'll take negredo over pato and david villa, not that he is better than them, but because he is not injury prone as them and he has a decent record for scoring even before his recent impressive 11 goals in 12 appearances

By the way,David Villa is not injury prone but he just suffered a very damaging injury at the CWC last year.

1) Demba Ba (27, 6ft 2): EPL experience, valued at 7.5m, can hold the ball up. 2) Alvaro Negredo (27, 6ft 1): No EPL experience, valued at 16m 3) Miguel Perez Cuesta (Michu, 26, 6ft 1): EPL experience, valued at 30m by Swansea? IMO go for Demba Ba.

Alvaro negredo is a decent shout out but for me if we are not getting Falcao i would go for Demba Ba and Walcott with either Wilfred Bony or Leandro Damiao as back ups since it is clear now that we dont intend to recall Lukaku in january. Let us not forget we need to get a proven BPL scoring option (Ba and Walcott) before adding on a younger /riskier option. This decison and if we get it right or wrong will dtermine if we can hold on to a top 4 position by season end. Where we finish at seasons end will then determine if we can get Falcao or some other top drawer striker in the summer because those type of Strikers will only go to teams playing in the champions league.

Alvaro Negredo is a very good Options.. he is big.. has ball skill... hold up play... a diamond in the ruff is u ask me.. and we cant go wrong with the inclusion of Ba as well. I think we need to seriously think about recalling Kevin form Bremen too; and get a CB whiel we at it because Luiz ia A Midfielder!

I hope we could get Ba for the remaining of the season... In summer, if possible we could swap Torres with Falcao and recall Lukaku... We will then have 4 strikers by considering Feruz into it.... Falcao as the main with Lukaku and Ba as the alternative and Feruz to lcontinue to learn...

Seriously i dont want us to sign Ba,firstly,he is Europa cup tied and so will be useless for us in that quest. And also,i don't see him as a good upgrade to Torres cos i have watched him too well yet not impressed with him. He is a mid table team CF at best. I 've watched Castle severally but have not seen that quality that makes Ba a preferred Cfc option and to be frank,we will be disappointed if we secure his services. Perhaps Torres' efforts and failure have made Cfc fans to have a mindset that any other average material will be okay. As for Negredo,he is not bad a choice if we fail to land more forceful strikers. This issue of 'BPL experience' to me is proving to be a peripherial factor that shouldnt be overemphasized as it is just a mind thing which is too unnecessary going by the latest trend in transfer outcomes. If Villa can be secured on a loan deal and maybe a Walcot acquisition,we can then ease through to the season subject to powerful summer signings.

I like Ba a lot and wanted him back in the Summer. But with the way our attacking midfield has been playing, I am not sure Ba fits into our style of play anymore. We can't just get any decent striker, we need to get a striker who fits our style. I'd argue that some of Torres' issues stem from the fact that we used to play the long ball to Drogba, which is definitely Ba's style. We have moved away from that - and I am not sure if Oscar/Mata/Hazard's play suits Ba at all. Negredo is from the Spanish academy - and may link up with MAZACAR better.
