Chelsea: Striker targets

There's no denying it, the quality of strikers around the footballing world in the current market is incredible.

Every league has that one striker that everyone wants, and some teams have already made their mark on the transfer market to get these players.

It's no secret that Chelsea are in the market for a striker. But with the likes of Cavani and Falcao already moving on. Who is left for the Blues to go for?

Wayne Rooney - After a bid from Chelsea was rejected last night, it looks as though Wayne is Mourinho's number one choice when it comes to the striker department. There's no denying his talent, and at times over the course of his career at Man United he has pulled off some unbelievable moments of pure skill. 

But questions hang over Rooney's head when it comes to goalscoring, and whether he can really push the likes of Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez when it comes to getting 20+ goals a season. 

I personally feel his best role is just behind the striker, but if Mourinho can work with him personally, then anything is possible. This in my opinion, is the most likely move for Chelsea.

Hulk - After an unsettled start to his career in Russia, it seems as though the Brazilian forward is looking to move on already. Chelsea and Hulk have had plenty of shared transfer rumours over the years, and he will no doubt be someone on their radar.

After a reported £39.5 million move to Zenit St Petersburg, it seems the forward won't come cheap, and will reportedly cost the same transfer fee again. With reports brewing that Hulk isn't happy with the Russian side, it seems a move could well be on the cards. I for one can't see the move to Chelsea going ahead.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic - What can I say? Every transfer window Zlatan seems to make headlines now and then, and I don't think this one will be an exception. The talented and controversial striker may be questioning his role at Paris Saint-Germain after they landed Edinson Cavani. 

You would assume the Swedish striker wants to be top dog, and after the Cavani signing, nothing is guaranteed. 

The problem with this transfer is the sheer amount of money PSG will ask for - alongside Ibrahimovic's age, it doesn't make for good reading. 

I highly doubt he will move to Chelsea, or Chelsea will be interested in him. But watch out for his name this summer, and don't write off a move to Spain. 

Nobody - With Romelu Lukaku coming back from his succesful loan spell at West Brom, Chelsea's set of strikers do look stronger than the previous season, where it was left between Torres and Ba to fight it out for the number one spot, neither of whom did a convincing job. 

Now it would be a risk not signing another striker, but considering Lukaku's form last season, there's nothing to say he can't lead the line for Chelsea.

With the season approaching, and time slowly running out, Chelsea won't take long to decide on their striker situation.

As mentioned, Rooney is the number one target, and it seems likely that if they were to sign anyone, it will be him. But as we all know, you can never be too sure with transfers, and as always, expect the unexpected.
