As a Chelsea fan, I am quietly confident that it will my boys lifting the Premier League title come May, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City squabbling for the places below. However, that could all change if we don’t recruit a prolific scorer in the new year.
The man I suggest that Mourinho goes after is Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski, who is out of contract in the summer, meaning that he can talk to clubs in January ahead of a move.
The Poland international is one of the most natural goal-scorers in Europe and has proved that he needs little support when it comes to putting the ball into the back of the net, which could be ideal for Mourinho’s lone striker role.
He is able to pull and push defenders out of position with ease and create little pockets of space inside the area – which is something that none of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba or Samuel Eto’o have suggested they can do.
Last season was one to remember for Lewandsowski as he scored 36 goals in 49 games in all competitions – 24 of which came in the Bundesliga. This season he has nine in nine and is looking just as deadly.
The way that he operates on his own up top, as well as the supply he would get from the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Willian – as well as the fact he wouldn’t be at Bayern Munich – would surely suit all parties.
I think the Blues should go all out for the goal-gobbler.
