Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is looking to bolster his attacking options, despite Alvaro Morata's stunning start to his career in West London.
The Real Madrid academy product became Chelsea's club record signing when he joined in a reported £58m deal.
Morata, 24, has scored six goals in seven Premier League games and has quickly become a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Michy Batshuayi - who managed only one Premier League start last season - is still struggling to convince his manager of his qualities as the starring striker.
The Belgian forward scored a last-gasp 94th minute winner against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League but is yet to get off the mark in the Premier League this season.
Morata is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and reports suggest Conte wants to add more goalscoring options to his attack.
According to Matt Hughes of The Times, the enigmatic Italian coach was angered by Chelsea's unsuccessful attempt to sign another striker towards the end of the summer transfer window.
"Conte is particularly aggrieved at not being given an alternative to Fernando Llorente, who chose to join Tottenham Hotspur in preference to Chelsea on transfer deadline day in August."
Ghanaian striker Richmond Boakye was signed at the age of nineteen by Conte during his time in charge at Juventus - although he never made a competitive appearance for the Old Lady.
He spent two seasons as a Juventus player but was sent out on season-long loans to Sassuolo and Elche before being sold to Atalanta.
Boakye, 24, is now enjoying himself at Serbian club Red Star Belgrade and his impressive goalscoring feats are reportedly attracting attention from European clubs.
He's scored 27 goals in 37 games since joining Red Star, including eight in this season's Europa League campaign thus far.
As per Conte's wishes, Chelsea scouts will be watching Boakye when Red Star host Arsenal on Thursday night.
