After failing to seal down a regular starting spot with the Red Devils during his years at the Theater of dreams, Mexican forward, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez was finally sold to Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen during the last summer transfer window. But the player who also spent a considerable amount of time last season on loan at Real Madrid is said to be on his way back to the EPL, as he has been lined up in a shocking transfer link to the Stamford Bridge once the winter transfer window opens by January.
Chelsea coach, Jose Mourinho, is keen to bring in new forwards after his team has suffered their worst start to the season, losing 7 matches out of 12 League games. The lack of a reliable finisher upfront has also harmed Chelsea’s chances of defending their title, as the team’s highest goal scorer for last term, Diego Costa, has failed to replicate the form that saw him score 20 goals in his EPL debut. Substitute striker, Radamel Falcao has also continued his poor form from his loan term at the Old Trafford as the AS Monaco forward has failed to find the back of the net more than once in the League.
Chicharito has been in fine form since arriving at Germany, settling into the style of play and also doing fine on the international scene. The 27 year-old striker now has 12 goals in 19 appearances for both club and country ever since his move, and could be available for 8.5 million Pounds according to reports if Chelsea decides to go for his services. Willian is Chelsea’s highest scorer so far, with only 5 goals across all competitions, and the club will definitely have to get a new finisher if they are to finish in a reasonable position at the end of the season.
