If rumour making the round is anything to go by, then Chelsea are set to have one of the most feared attacking force in EPL next year.
Letest report according to the Sun claims that Chelsea’s boss Jose Mourinho has targeted Valencia sensational striker Paco Alcacer to serve as competitor for first place attacking force come January transfer window.
It is said that Mourinho is not happy with the performance of his attacking trio in Diago Costa, Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao this season expecially with summer signing Falco who has been below par this season.
Alcacer scored a total of 16 goals in 30 appearances for his Spanish side last season, helping them to qualify for the prestigious UEFA Champions League.
Although he has only scored one goal for Valencia this season, he however finished Euro 2016 qualifier campaign as Spain’s leading goal scorer with five goals, ahead of Chelsea hit man Diego Costa.
Chelsea would however be expected to max out a massive €76million included in the young star buy-out clause if they are to lure in to Stamford Bridge in January.
The price may seem large for a 22-year old who still has a lot to learn, but with the likes of Raheem sterling Anthony Martial and kevin De Bruyne commanding €67million, €49million and €75million respectively, Chelsea may just have to strike Alcacer deal if they are to remain competitive this season.
