Current options - Fernando Torres, Demba Ba
Possible signings - Edinson Cavani, Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gomez, Stevan Jovetic
When you have Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Andre Schurrle you have four of the best young creative attackers in the game.
But none are finishers. Put a poacher in amongst this lot, and he'll have a field day. Because Torres doesn't look like getting back to the 2008 vintage, even if he's improved in recent months.
Demba Ba is a role player, a useful impact substitute. A starter for a team that harbours domestic and European ambitions? Not so much.
Edinson Cavani or Robert Lewandowski turns them from Premier League title contender, to favourite.
