Chelsea Interested in Ghanaian Striker

Chelsea Interested in Ghanaian Striker

The transfer window may be closed and there`ll be no wheeling and dealing carried out until January 2018, but are Chelsea already looking to bring a new striker to the club?

It would, if the transfer tittle-tattle is correct, seem to be the case.

Chelsea`s apparent failure to add to the strike-force when Llorente joined Tottenham Hotspur instead of Chelsea has been amplified now that our most costly signing in our history, Alvaro Morata, has picked up a hamstring injury.

But, on the morning before the Premier League action resumes, just who are Chelsea looking to acquire?

Well, according to the good folk of the Daily Mail, Chelsea are set to send scouts to watch the Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye, in action against Arsenal in the Europa League tie.

Boakye is 24-years-of age and a Ghanaian international but, apart from that, we have to confess to knowing very little about him.

Therefore, we`ve compiled one of our mini fact-files on the player for your perusal:
