Chelsea could make a move for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

The report claims that the Blues are ready to add to their striker options as they go in search of climbing the Premier League table. 

The west London outfit have endured a torrid campaign and currently find themselves in 14th position in England's elite division.

Their strikers have certainly flattered to deceive; enigmatic forward Deigo Costa, who was sensational last season, has failed to prove his credentials on a consistent basis but has picked up form recently. 

Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao, meanwhile, have struggled for opportunities at Stamford Bridge, so boss Guus Hiddink is clearly in need of freshening things up. 

Bacca, then, appears to be a potential signing for the Blues while the same report also claims that they are interested in Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and Atletico Madrid ace Jackson Martinez.

Chelsea vs Liverpool 

But if they pursue Bacca, it won't be easy for Chelsea to land him. He's rated at a huge £30 million by his club and has also attracted interest from Liverpool.

It appears that Liverpool and Chelsea could yet go head-to-head for the 29-year-old Colombian over the coming weeks. 

Liverpool, much like Chelsea, could do with adding to their attack sooner rather than later. Under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have a whole host of injuries to contend with - Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi have both failed to maintain their fitness in attack - so a move for Bacca could help them in their pursuit of success.
