Striker finally on the way to Chelsea?

It’s been an ongoing saga at Stamford Bridge. Despite spending more than any other Premier League team this summer there is still much speculation about Chelsea’s need for another top centre forward. With Fernando Torres’ nerves shredded and RVP having chosen United, it appears that the most obvious two targets are Edinson Cavani and Porto’s Hulk.

Chelsea seem to have been see-sawing between the two all summer. Perhaps, in truth, they would be happy with either. Cavani exploded last season scoring multiple goals in a resurgent Napoli side. Since 2010 he has scored 48 goals in 69 appearances for the Italian club. Hulk has the grace of a falling feather but the power of a bulldozer. He looks almost as if he has been computer designed for The Premier League.

A deal doesn’t look like it will happen before the season starts and Chelsea have recently complained about inflated transfer fees. The other consideration for the top brass at Chelsea is whether signing another high profile striker would provide the final nail in the coffin for the ego of Torres.

Cavani has emerged as the more serious target, if reports are to be believed, but Hulk has made a plea to his current employers to let him go to The Premier League.

 ‘I didn’t talk too much with my agent about the chance of being transferred, because I have been on duty with the Brazilian national team at the Olympics.

‘This could be the time for me to move. I would feel comfortable with moving clubs and the English league is one that appeals to me.

‘I am going to talk about my future from Monday. My future is in the hands of God.’

The last couple of weeks of the transfer window will be very interesting for Chelsea

    Aug 16, 2012 at 11:18 am #Modrid is already A̶̲̥̅̊ Madrid player. #Azspilicueta will be A̶̲̥̅̊ chelsea player by tomorrow evening and at most saturday morning. #Moses to chelsea is looking unlikely but expect A̶̲̥̅̊ deal for him in the coming days. #Hulk is A̶̲̥̅̊ necessary player for #chelsea. If you watched the olympics and the super cupa de itlalia you’ll know that #Cavani is being hyped by his big mouth president. We should’ve bought #Lavezzi cause it was him not cavani that did most of the dirty works and assist @napoli. #Hulk fits more into our system…can play as A̶̲̥̅̊ RW or CF if #Torres goes of form.

  37. Pele

    Aug 16, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Chelsea should get Hulk, Moses nd Apz! Getting a Cavani wld only push a promising Torres baq to d bench and not to forget Chelsea cant play 2 strikers up front. Get a Hulk who can play on d wings and as wel play d striking position if necessary. Chelsea lost d match against Mancity due 2 dere physical fitness. We nid a Hulk to put pressure on other teams. We lost a physically fit Player like Drogba we nid anoda physcially strong player upfront like Hulk. Mata, Torres, Hazard, Oscar, Marin re al soft playerz. We al saw how Hazard ws brushed aside many tymes by City playerz on Sunday.

  38. Holub

    Aug 16, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    If de teams like city use physical game y don’t we use tiki-taka passes like Barcelona so dat ur opponent will become tired nd u score goals easily like other thing our defenders nowadays let de strikers 2 score like what dey did during de game of city.p/z keep up ur spirits and defend our net.4 de attackers’ u shouldn’t dribble de ball more becoz dis will give ur opponent 2 reorganize demselves back.i mean quick nd accurate passes nd crosses is needed in our team.4ever blue fan.

      Aug 17, 2012 at 6:54 am

      Barca’s tik-tak football is a tradition and its not something they are learning today! Their tik-tak football is called ‘Rondo’ according to Xavi, that is what they do in training as well has the youth team! That is why you see teams would only try to play like Barca but neva like them. As well no Team in the world can ever have the possession of the ball than Barca. You can’t just change Chelsea’s playing style over nite, don’t forget that was one of AVB’s dream and he crashed out at the end. Chelsea has been known since 2004 for there physical strength, so do you think they can then play like Barca over night?

  69. Cory

    Aug 16, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    i think we should buy Moses first, he has proven himself in the premier league already with a team as small as Wigan, just imagine what he could do for Chelsea. Hulk would be a good buy aswell he’s great at running with the ball just like Hazard, Hulk would fit into our team better than Cavanni!

  70. victorkefe oboro

    Aug 16, 2012 at 5:57 pm

  71. lekan

    Aug 16, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Hulk or cavani doesn’t worth d transfer fee. Cavani doesnt worth more than 100k per week. If we give him the 150k, that is how it will continue in other transfers. Torres is better than them we only need somebody as a backup. We have better options like ideye, demba ba or soldado. Spend wisely.

    Why this confussion, Moses first b/4 hulk . I prefer hulk b/cos he is humble and eager to play for chelsea. The BIBLE said the humble in heart will inherit the LORD’S kingdom so calvany is good but proud so now hulk is the man up the blues. justice speaks for better play and results ok.

    Any of the two will fit in! We are getting tired of all these rumors, we need action at this point in time. The league gets underway the weekend. However, it’s our tradition having last laugh in May, let do it again this coming season.
