It seems strange that Jose Mourinho let Romelu Lukaku leave the club in order to join Everton on loan, especially with what it has left Chelsea with in the forward department. With only Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o to choose from, Mourinho isn’t exactly blessed with natural goal-getters. But things could be changing, as talkSPORT are reporting that the Blues could be lining up a move for Porto frontman Jackson Martinez, which should spark excitement across the Chelsea fanbase.
There are a few strikers across Europe that are floating around right now who are being linked with moves, but in my eyes none would suit the west London outfit as well as this powerhouse.
The 27-year-old fired Porto to the Portuguese title last season with 26 goals in 30 games, as well as another eight goals in cup competitions. He picked up the golden boot for the league and has carried his fine form into this campaign.
He now has nine goals in 10 games and has impressed in so many aspects. He is a powerful forward who spearheads Porto’s attacking unit brilliantly, dragging defenders out of their positions and creating space for his colleagues, very much like how Didier Drogba used to play. He can score goals with both feet and his head, as well as bringing others into play.
Will Chelsea get their man? You’d certainly hope so if you were a fan of the club.
