Chelsea have been heavily linked to Napoli star Edison Cavani, as well as Zenit's Brazilian bulldozer Hulk.
But with an evidently busy transfer saga, even at its early stages, Chelsea will have to act quickly if they wish to secure an in-form striker.
The recent improvement of Spain striker Fernando Torres adds a cushioned relief to the Chelsea family - if they miss out on a big-name signing that is - and the return of Romelu Lukaku feathers that very cushion, creating a deeper level of relaxation.
Between Torres, Demba Ba and Lukaku, the latter will be the most propitious option. However, with the level of activity in the transfer window, on a logical sense, Chelsea should sign an already top-class striker.
Cavani will be the most popular to the readers of this article. The Uruguayan is definitely an assassin in front of goal, a symbol of a striker’s determination to score and an android predominantly programmed to get the job done.
It's almost as if Cavani can telepathically control the ball - an unfair advantage to the opposing teams.
However, a release clause of €63m is asking a bit much. Yes, he’s one of the hottest prospects in world football right now, and yes, he is wanted by almost every team in Europe, but that doesn’t mean that teams should foolishly name their price.
Chelsea are reluctant to pay the asking price and will not squabble to the Napoli hierarchy and their obtuse demands. If Napoli fail to comply with Chelsea’s decision, and vise-versa, then the Blues will willingly move on to add yet another Brazilian to the team.
Hulk represents a fusion of the industrial and creative side of the game. A gene splice of Latino trickery and English power surging.
Hulk will feel right at home at Stamford Bridge, which already has a handful of Brazilian players, and a Portuguese manager.
Even though the European and South American dialects are somewhat different, they are still more closely related to each other than what English or French are.
If Chelsea fail to make a major signing this summer, Lukaku may be the man to take charge, which doesn’t all sound that bad.
