Chelsea FC: 8 Players Who Could Replace Didier Drogba in January

The January transfer window is just around the corner, and managers of clubs all over the world are preparing what moves they are going to make.

Chelsea fans have come to expect big money splashed on players in every transfer window.

With the revolving door that seems to usher players in and out of the club every season, there are few players who stay part of the furniture at Stamford Bridge and remain an integral part of the side.

One player who has achieved this is Didier Drogba.

The Ivorian striker, now in his seventh year at Chelsea, has been one of the most important players for the club in recent years.

A bully of a central forward, he has terrorised defenders and scored an untold amount of important goals for club and country.

But now aged 33...and not getting any younger, some questions marks have been raised about Drogba's future in a blue shirt.

Still a living legend at Chelsea, he is worshipped at the Bridge, but his form and consistency have come under scrutiny in recent performances. With his contract running out at the end of the season, whispers of big-money offers have circled the tabloids.

A fact many Chelsea fans won't want to hear, but a fact all the same, is that Drogba leaving is certainly a possibility.

With his presence and scoring ability going with him, Chelsea are going to need a replacement as deadly, or even deadlier than Chelsea's No. 11.

Here is a list of players who have the potential to be big hits at Chelsea and take some of the goal scoring responsibility from Daniel Sturridge.
