I regularly look at who Chelsea take an interest to when leading up to transfer windows opening and whilst they are open, a load of names have cropped up and i wanted to know who you think Chelsea FC should sign, i think it is likely that Chelsea will sign a midfielder and a Striker.
Here are the people that we are supposedly interested in.
Falcao - World class, probably the best striker in the world at the moment, extremely prolific, two footed can use head and can almost guarantee Chelsea 25 goals a season, if not injured, however he would cost between 40-50M.
Demba Ba - Excellent, not world class but a proven goal scorer in the epl, with a buy out clause rumored to be around 7.5M, this would be a steal, just like Falcao he has a physical presence, and is considerably cheaper.
Yaya Toure - Regarded by some as the best defensive midfielder in the world, Chelsea have not had a player of this type, who can change defense into attack so quickly, not sure on his valuation but it would be a hefty price, as well a big hit on our wage budget BUT it would improve our team significantly.
Fellaini - Another Midfielder who can play defensively and Chelsea have shown interest and were prepared to pay up to £20M according to the sun. (unreliable). He would be a safer bet than Mikel in my opinion as well as offering a more attacking threat.
Rodrigo - Don't know a lot, fairly young as he featured in the U21 squad for Spain i think it was and he hit 15 or 16 goals in all competitions last year. valued at around £16M for the striker.
Kyle walker- Rumored interest for the pacy right back, not so great at defending but a great attacking full back, also young. £9M
Neymar - World class, small quick, technical, fits the bill of the last player we have invested in but is he guaranteed goals in the epl can the striker adapt to the physicality. I believe he could. £40-60M.
Ryan Shawcross- 25 fairly young, good solid defender, wouldn't cost to much and you wouldn't mind him playing if 2 of our CB's were injured. £10M
Sergio Busquets- will need to remove the diving, besides that world class, good distributor and would improve the team. £25M
Paulinho - Defensive mid Brazilian, great potential. £20M
Not sure about the truth behind these rumors, The prices are approximated values, if there are any other rumors please comment and if you don't mind can you take part in the poll :)
