Zenit striker Hulk is reportedly unsettled in Russia
I mentioned in the last slide that Falcao would command a massive transfer fee, which I'm not sure Chelsea would be willing to pay, especially at the risk of upsetting the enigmatic Fernando Torres.
There are other options for the Blues to pursue.
Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk could be one of those options.
After he was substituted in a Champions League game earlier this month, guardian.co.uk (among other sources) reported that a furious Hulk told local media:
If the situation with the coach does not resolve itself I may leave the club in the January transfer window.
In the same Guardian article, his manager, Luciano Spalletti, was quoted as saying:
Hulk can say anything he wants, but if I decide to change him during the game it means I'm not happy with his play... Hulk is mistaken if he thinks he should play for 90 minutes all the time. He said he wants to leave? Then, it's his choice and I can do nothing about it.
I don't know the ins and outs of transfer policy in terms of whether or not one player can move between countries twice in the same calendar year, but if Zenit are willing to do a cut-price deal and cut their losses, Chelsea would be foolish not to make an enquiry.
There are others in the Premier League who could do a job up front and are proven Premier League goalscorers, none more so than Newcastle's Demba Ba.
I know it doesn't seem like an obvious signing, but Ba's goal-scoring record in the last couple of years has been frightening.
Since joining West Ham in January 2011, Ba has scored 35 league goals in 63 league games for both The Hammers and Newcastle.
If this report from the Sun newspaper a couple of weeks ago can be believed, Ba is reportedly available for a cut-price £7.5 million because of a clause in his contract.
Their case is further helped by claims in the same report that negotiations over a new contract have stalled because of Ba's reported wage demands.
If it's a toss-up between shelling out over the odds for an albeit talented player, or signing a proven Premier League goalscorer, I know which one I'd rather have.
