Jonathan Calleri to Chelsea

Chelsea Set To Agreed £25m Deal For 16 Goals In 41 Games South American

Chelsea’s lack of prowess in the final third has come to the fore since the season began, and the team continues to search for replacements. Despite winning against Norwich City in the last match by a lone goal, it still remains obvious that the squad needs quality addition in strikers if they are to finish in a sensible position on the log at the end of the season.

Despite grabbing the only goal of yesterday’s match, Costa still isn’t who he was last season. Mourinho is looking at getting a replacement, and has even gone as far as South America in search of one. The Portuguese has identified Boca Juniors forward, Jonathan Calleri, as one of the striking options to arrive by January.

The 22 year-old striker has emerged as one of the prospects of the South American League after netting 21 goals and supplying 11 assists in the ongoing season of the Argentina League. Reports say a deal is close to being agreed upon in the next few weeks and he is due to arrive the Stamford Bridge in the early weeks of January as the club are keen to get him as soon as possible. Calleri is said to be available for a small price of 6 million Pounds, and could be immediately sent out on loan for the remainder of the season when he arrives.

Having started the season on the poorest of notes, Chelsea are keen to turn it around and there could be an influx of players in and out of the squad by winter and summer, as the management is willing to make major squad changes. The Argentine winger will be one out of many additions the coach will be hoping to bring in by January. Despite reports that Mourinho will loan out the forward sensation, the poor form of his crop of strikers could force him to give a chance to the Boca Juniors star to prove himself in the team first.
