Vitesse defender Tomas Kalas has told Chelsea his team-mate Wilfried Bony would be the perfect signing for the Stamford Bridge side.

The Czech defender is currently on loan from Chelsea, and believes his parent club should swoop for his Vitesse team-mate before another side beats them to it.

Bony has 13 caps for Ivory Coast, and made the move to Vitesse last season from Sparta Prague, and Kalas thinks he has the quality to make the grade at Chelsea in the Premier League.

"Chelsea need a player like him [Bony] at the moment," Kalas said on Goal.com. "Torres is always moving and works hard, but he is not strong enough to lead the line. I'm sorry for Torres, but that's my personal opinion.

"Bony has so much quality. It's incredible how strong he is and he's excellent on the ball, too. I can understand why he has been linked with Chelsea and other clubs.

The 23-year-old has 12 goals in 11 league appearances so far this season, and has been linked with a move away from Holland.

"It will be impossible for Vitesse to hold on to him if he keeps this up," continued Kalas. "Perhaps we'll play together at Chelsea in the future. That would be great.

"We haven't spoken about a transfer yet, but it would be nice to play alongside him at Stamford Bridge in a while."

Kalas is one of three Chelsea players on loan at Vitesse. The Czech defender has been joined by Patrick van Aanholt and Gael Kakuta at the Dutch club, who currently sit third in the Eredivisie table.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers, and the Stamford Bridge side could look to strengthen in January.

The Blues squad is thin on forward options, and Roberto Di Matteo only has Danny Sturridge and Fernando Torres to choose from at the moment.
