Mourinho eyes front line revamp

Mourinho eyes front line revamp

Following his sides 1-0 defeat away at Crystal Palace on Saturday, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hinted that he will revamp his Chelsea front line.

After the defeat, Mourinho ruled Chelsea out of the title race for this season.

Many will point to the fact that he chose to loan out Romelu Lukaku to Everton at the start of the season. Especially with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba both struggling for form and goals this season.

“I don’t think it’s the moment to speak about next season and the market but it’s clear to everybody that Chelsea next year wants to bring in a striker,” said Mourinho.

“What’s the future for the other strikers? The ones who are staying are competing with the striker we are bringing [in]. And normally, at the end of the season, players that are not playing a lot or players who are not happy may prefer a change.

“That is also part of the market. We want to improve the team and the players and make some surgical movements in the transfer window.

“It’s also clear that we want to improve our players. I can’t and I don’t need to improve (Branislav) Ivanovic, (Gary) Cahill, John Terry.

“There are other guys I need to improve. I think we are doing that step by step, but it’s not enough to be champions.”

Mourinho was heavily linked with a move for Wayne Rooney during last Summer and it is well known that that he is a huge Diego Costa fan.

If Chelsea are to once again be the Champions of England then they will need to bring in at least 1 new striker in the Summer transfer window.
