But could he be a good fit for Chelsea?
With Romelu Lukaku going out on loan to West Brom we don't have many striker options left.
If Torres gets injured, suspended, or god forbid goes on a goal drought reminiscent of last season we're left with just Daniel Sturridge.
Danny has long fancied himself as a centre forward and is surely going to get a chance this season down the middle. But can he be relied upon for 90 minutes if something happens to Torres? Is he the player we want to bring off the bench with 30 minutes left, chasing the game? I'm not so sure.
Of course we can experiment with Eden Hazard down the middle, but let's be honest he's not really a striker.
We need investment.
We've been linked with Hulk, Cavani and recently Victor Moses. Hulk and Cavani would be huge signings but they both wouldn't want to play second fiddle to Fernando. Victor Moses... He's not really a striker. He doesn't have a great scoring record, and although he has undeniable talent, I don't think he's what we need.
We need a quick striker that has passing ability and can play on the line of the defence.
We need a player with a good work rate off the ball.
We need a player with a goal scoring instinct and a proven goal scoring record.
We need a player that can fit into our new quick, short passing, keep the ball on the ground style of football.
Chicharito seems to tick all these boxes.
Now Robin van Persie has joined United, news is coming through that Javier Hernandez aka. Chicharito is unsettled. Although there is a reluctancy for United players to join Chelsea, we have seen it before, so it is not completely out of the question.
We could offer him the pay package he wants, and he would have just one striker ahead of him in the pecking order here at Chelsea, as opposed to 3 at United. He should see good game time with the amount of competitions that we are in and is young and has potential.
So what do you think?
Could Chicharito be an option at Chelsea?
