Chelsea are set to be busy indeed this summer with Jose Mourinho having identified the acquisition of a marquee striker as his top priority. He actually did so last summer, but the Blues were unable to land their preferred targets.

Samuel Eto’o was the one reinforcement to the goalscoring department and, while the veteran Cameroonian has been competent, he hardly possesses the prowess of his time at both Barcelona and Inter Milan.

Eto’o is the best of a pretty beleagured bunch at Stamford Bridge, with Fernando Torres never really offering Chelsea what they require despite numerous chances, and Demba Ba even further down Mourinho’s food chain.

Chelsea would be wise to act early in the market this year given the World Cup in Brazil, but who will their first signing be? Here are the odds on the first face through the door in west London, as provided by a leading bookmaker.
