Much has been made recently by media and pundits about Chelsea's lack of depth in the striker role, with Fernando Torres being the side's only recognised striker.

So, much of Chelsea's possible January transfer dealings have been focused on who would be the right striker to sign as cover or possible competition for Torres.
