After considering we've just lost Didier Drogba and Romelu Lukaku, we're left to just last seasons 2nd and 5th choice strikers(Arguably Kalou was ahead of Sturridge in the pecking order under Di Matteo) to somehow fight with the likes of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero, etc. Then I start to think there's a striker who finished above us last season who has had quite a good record in the premiership and for Real Madrid.
We need a striker. 99% of Chelsea fans will agree to that now that Lukaku has gone to get more minutes. The thing is, it looks like we're either getting Moses as that striker or Edison Cavani who is hugely over priced. Moses has great potential but playing striker is probably not his best position given his size and clear ability on the ball with a lacking goal record. Cavani will probably struggle to score as many goals as last year without Lavezzi behind him at Napoli. So we could either take a risk Moses will become a top Rooney-like striker, or wait until Cavani is available on the cheap. Or, we could sign a top Premier League striker in his prime who has had quite the successful time at Real Madrid, Arsenal & Tottenham for a marginal fee, but quite high wages. Man City aren't guaranteed to sell, but they will listen to offers of course. Mancini is desperate to add to his team this year, and removing Adebayor from his wage bill will be a key factor in doing that. Adebayor scored 18 goals and got 11 official assists in 35 starts last season, very very impressive stats. Not only that, he'd be a very good replacement for Didier Drogba. He'd be able to play the same sort of game as Didier as well as the through ball, TottenhamArsenal-esque style his had in the past. He'd be value for money, and if nothing else, brilliant backup for Fernando.
