Jose Mourinho has revealed that Chelsea are in the market for a striker this summer, with Falcao a blip on their radar.
Drogba left after the season ended, which is more reason for Chelsea to shop for a striker. Rumour has it that the Portuguese manager is driving the signing for Falcao.
He told The Sunday Times: “We have to buy a striker because we want to have three strikers of a good level.
“We do not want to have just one [transfer target]. Then you lose a good position on the negotiation table.”
Mourinho maintains that improving his premier league winning squad will be a hard task.
He added: “It will be difficult to find players to go straight into the team.
“Because it’s not easy to find a better striker than Diego [Costa], a better keeper than [Thibaut] Courtois, a better midfield player than [Nemanja] Matic or [Cesc] Fabregas.
“This season is about improving the squad, bringing players to make us more consistent, so we don’t go through difficult periods like last season when we had crucial injuries. We have to try and protect that situation by adding two or three players.”
