5 Strikers Chelsea Could Sign This January

Chelsea are under some serious pressure from Manchester United. Frank Lampard’s side currently occupy 4th place, but with a minuscule 5 point lead over United, Chelsea are at risk of missing out on next season’s Champions League if they drop some important points over the next 5 months.

On that note, Lampard is looking to sign some new players in a bid to bolster Chelsea’s chances of finishing within the top four.

With transfer speculations suggesting that the Blues are in the market for a new striker, here’s a look at 5 strikers they could sign this month;

Moussa Dembele

Mousa Dembele

Chelsea are currently heavily linked with a move for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele. The Frenchman has scored 11 goals in 19 appearances making him one of the most prolific strikers in the Ligue 1 at the moment.

Dembele is a physical striker who’s capable of holding the ball up and laying off to his teammates in Giroud-esque fashion. The 23-year-old is also quite good with the ball at his feet, as he’s able to dribble past defenders to create space for a shot or a pass.

Dembele would be an excellent addition to Chelsea’s lineup as he possesses a skillset that will allow him to thrive under Frank Lampard’s system.

  1. Dembele will be a great addition so GO FOR HIM though I believe he may not be released by his club. Mertens will also be useful.
