Chelsea’s search for extra attacking firepower will take them to Spurs’ Harry Kane, according to reports in the British press this morning.
Chelsea have been left exposed after injuries and suspensions to Diego Costa meant they were forced to rely upon Loic Remy and the unimpressive Radamel Falcao, meaning that they have struggled for goals this season.
This morning’s papers are linking the Premiership champions to England international Harry Kane, against whose Spurs side Chelsea take on this Sunday. Kane scored twice in the 5-3 win for Spurs in this fixture last season, perhaps Chelsea’s worst league result in a campaign where they won the title by eight points, with a summer move being suggested.
There has been speculation in the last day and a half following Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the Champions League on Tuesday in regards to Costa’s future. A reported argument with Jose Mourinho came after an underwhelming performance from the Spain international, and Chelsea may be looking to Kane to replace Costa as opposed to accompanying him up front.
A failure to bolster the forward line is one of many reasons why Chelsea currentrly sit 15th in the Premiership table. Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, who recently equaled a league record for 10 goals in 10 matches for the Foxes, is being spoken about as potential January signing.
