Chelsea had a lot to prove this summer, with new boss Jose Mourinho setting his sights on English striker Wayne Rooney, a proven goalscorer whose future was far from certain at the Theatre Of Dreams.
Mourinho made his move for Samuel Eto'o, a man who he managed at Inter Milan although Eto'o has scored just four goals this season.
The striker is a proven goalscorer and would bring valuable experience, however the star does not stop ageing and his wage demands are inexcusable.
So perhaps there would have been better strikers to sign, such as the new Manchester City forward, Stevan Jovetic.
Jovetic signed for Manchester City from Fiorentina this summer, although so far he has been a pointless acquisition and doesn't get enough opportunities at the Etihad, despite being a proven class act.
He currently sits fifth in the pecking order at the club, facing fierce competition from the league's best striking duo of Alvaro Negredo and the ever present Sergio Aguero who never seems to do anything wrong.
Edin Dzeko also sits in front of the Montenegrin, although he could be another player on his way out of the club with Arsenal possible suitors.
Jovetic scored 35 goals in 116 appearances for the club, however since his move he has been limited to just three appearances which is not enough to fulfil his needs.
With Samuel Eto'o quiet, Torres injured and not yet acquainted with the net and Demba Ba limited to just cameo appearances it is up to Mourinho to get the right person in January.
The 24-year-old Montenegrin is prolific for both club and country, and could have easily been the man to solve Chelsea's striking dilemma.
So why don't Chelsea move for the Montenegrin?
