Following their shock defeat to Crystal Palace yesterday, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho conceded that their title hopes were over despite sitting at the top of the Premier League.

With both Liverpool and Manchester City able to leapfrog the Blues with victories in their games in hand, Chelsea's lack of a prolific forward was again highlighted by the inability to find the net in Saturday's 1-0 defeat. 

With the ageing Samuel Eto'o out injured, Fernando Torres continues to struggle and it would appear his days at the Bridge are limited.

It's become clear that Chelsea's main priority this summer will be to secure a high profile forward to solve the goal-scoring issues that Mourinho has been critical of. 

And with that in mind, GMS contributor Alex Brown has put together a shortlist of those who could well be in with a chance of a move to Chelsea during the transfer window, and could prove the missing piece to Jose's master plan.
