Chelsea Eye Prolific £24m Striker To Replace Drogba

By on May 24, 2012

The summer transfer window is fast approaching and we’ll aim to keep you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news. Today sees Chelsea linked with a big money move for Seydou Doumbia.

Seydou+Doumbia

Chelsea have identified CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia as a potential replacement for Didier Drogba, according to the Daily Mail.

Drogba is set to leave Chelsea this summer after 8 years at Stamford Bridge, with his final kick in a Blues shirt securing the Champions League trophy last weekend bringing to an end a glorious spell in West London. His departure will leave a huge hole up front that needs to be filled and the Mail claim that the Londoners have added Doumbia to the list of candidates.

The 24-year-old CSKA Moscow striker is an international team mate of both Drogba and Saloman Kalou, who will also be leaving Chelsea this summer, and is valued at around £26m by his club.

Doumbia’s stock has risen considerably in recent years, with the striker netting an impressive 33 goals in 53 games for CSKA since joining the club in the summer of 2010 Swiss club Young Boys.

    would b a nice cover for torres. But I think that money can b use for getting a quality midfielder as we have sturridge.
