Chelsea have not found it easy all through this new season and they have Suffered greatly due to their lack of credible attackers and while the ones they have are not even ready to perform and the manager Jose Mourinho and club owner Roman Abramovich have decided that only new players can make the turnaround work. Chelsea have therefore started their hunt to sign key attackers during the upcoming January Transfer Window as club manager Jose Mourinho has identified that his problems are with the lethargic attackers he has.
According to reports from French journal L’Equipe, Chelsea have agreed to a €10million deal to sign the highly talented Argentine attacker Jonathan Calleri from Boca Junior and the deal has been completed with the announcement to be made in three weeks.
L’equipe are claiming that the Argentine media is filled up with Calleri signing for Chelseaduring the upcoming January transfer window as Mourinho sees the youngster as the most viable option to add to his attacking players.
So far this season, players like Eden Hazard, Oscar, Pedro, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas have been very disappointing and their performances have incessantly cost the team as they have not even been able to score goals to save themselves.
Earlier in the season, Mourinho had clearly revealed his intentions to drop the big-name stars if they do not perform as according to the expected standard of their status. That is why the 22-year old Boca Junior forward is being linked heavily with a move to Stamford Bridge and he could very well replace any of the underperforming stars.
To add more fuel to this rumour, Argentine newspaper, Mundod have even set a date for Calleri’s arrival in England. Mundod have made claims that the signing will be announced after Boca Junior’s elections on the 6th of December, which means that the deal will be announced in three weeks.
L’equipe are convinced of the transfer going through and are quoting a €10million price tag for the highly rated forward. Goal have gone on to say that Boca are keen on selling Calleri to bring back Dani Osvaldo at the club. Former Juventus striker was shipped because of the high wage demands, however, with Calleri gone in January, the club could be able to afford their striker back.
