5 Strikers Jose Mourinho Should Target for Chelsea This Summer

Jose Mourinho's on the lookout this summer.

It's been four years since a Chelsea player scored over 15 goals in the Premier League. 

Blues legends Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard netted 29 and 22 goals respectively in the 2009-10 campaign. Chelsea won the league double that year—winning the FA Cup and setting the Premier League's goals-in-a-season record (103) in route to their last top-flight conquest.

Though the run may be ending this season, as Eden Hazard's logged 12 goals with 10 games left, strikers Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba are nowhere close to 15.

The trio have a collective 11 goals this Premier League campaign—simply not good enough for a club with Chelsea’s aspirations. Especially considering Liverpool's Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have a combined 42 goals.

What then should Jose Mourinho do about this lack of striking productivity?

Romelu Lukaku should be back in the fold, but Wayne Rooney's no longer an option, neither Robert Lewandowski—so who can help spur the Blues on to continued success?

The deep pockets of Roman Abramovich make any transfer possible, but as Chelsea are attempting to comply with UEFA's Financial Fair Play, the Russian billionaire is rather handcuffed.

The list of potential striking targets is massive; there are many viable options from which to choose. This list is based on: Rumoured links, health, compatibility, age and monetary consequence.
