Chelsea Favourites To Land Powerful African Striker?

European champions Chelsea are favourites to land highly-rated Vitesse Arnham striker Wilfried Bony, who has been strongly linked with a move this January.

Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, Chelsea are linked with Wilfried Bony.

European champions Chelsea are favourites to land highly-rated Vitesse Arnham striker Wilfried Bony, according to the Metro.

The 23-year-old Ivorian has been labelled as the ‘new Didier Drogba’ due to his physical style of play and has scored an impressive 27 goals in just 46 games for the Dutch outfit since making the move from Sparta Prague in 2011.

This form has attracted interest from several clubs throughout Europe and Bony has been linked with a big-money move this January, with the Metro claiming the Blues are heading the queue of interested parties.

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is desperate to add another striker to his squad when the transfer window re-opens in January, with Fernando Torres struggling for form and doubts continue over the long-term future of Daniel Sturridge.

The Metro’s report linking Chelsea with Bony come’s just days after Blues defender Tomas Kalas – who’s on loan at Vitesse – claimed his parent club needed a player with Bony’s qualities:

‘Chelsea need a player like him [Bony] at the moment,’

‘Torres is always moving and works hard, but he is not strong enough to lead the line.

‘I’m sorry for Torres, but that’s my personal opinion.’

Kalas in quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

Is this a coincidence? Chelsea are now regarded as favourites to sign a player, whom they have not been strongly linked with in the past, just days after he was recommended to them? Hmmmm…

Chelsea may hold an interest in Bony, but i think the Metro are going a little overboard to say they are now ‘favourites’ to sign him in January. A striker is almost certain to move to Stamford Bridge in the winter, will it be Bony? Only time will tell, but i wouldn’t be rushing out to place a bet on it.

Who would Chelsea fans like to see signed in January? Get involved in the comments section.

    We need Naymer! Simple. If we cannot get him now, let us wait for him by bringing Falcao. Thanks

    We need a high profile striker that can produce goals wit both foot,am i think falcao and cavani are such,but as for bony and jackson martinez these are unknown players.

    November 10, 2012 at 5:15 am

    I’ve not seen this Bony but a couple of quality strikers out there like Robert Lewadowski, jovetic can do us some good if they are willing to join up in january. Torres hasn’t live up to his expectation, he is to score goals and whatever happens to my chelsea, i’ll hold him rensponsible

    Bony wil b a vri good 4 chelsea,let’s 4get abt all dis costly strikers dey wun’t do us any good,take example of shavchenko,pizzaro,torress we just waist our money on dm 4 ntn,let us go 4 bony,blues 4 lyf.

  19. Adamu abubakar

    November 10, 2012 at 5:24 am

    Falcao is a good player but am afraid of hm flopin at chelsea bcz costly strikers found it difficult 2 cop wit chelsea fance pressure,my advice is dat we shuld go wit bony wilfreid nd recall lukaku in january,i bliv dat wil help.

    We really don’t need another high profile striker, SHEVCHENKO was @ his best when we signed him, TORRES was on the decline when we signed him though his name was very hot! We didn’t notice. I personally like Falcao but i don’t want him at CHELSEA! This is because FALCAO has obviously given his best to FC PORTO & A.MADRID and we don’t need another striker that has nothing more to improve on. We need a double foot finisher, a striker that can help one of Hazard,Mata,Oscar win tha balon D’or at CHELSEA; this striker can be anybody but certainly Is neither TORRES nor FALCAO Chelsea must get it right this time like we did on Drogba.

  23. yungslem

    November 10, 2012 at 6:44 am

    i wil realy prefer atype of lewondowski he is very effeciant quick,gud upper body strengh,knows how place him self between deffenders,he can hold up the ball upfront,very gud in the air with his head,very direct at goal post,gud foot works,above all clenical finisher.he wil realy complement mata,hazard and oscar.

    Bony is a good stricker according to the report that he scored 27goals in 46 app.but what of falcao who scored 14 goals in just 9 app? please get facao first although he cost expensive i’m sure that he can bring more.

    November 10, 2012 at 8:14 am

    Will don’t need any other striker than bony and leandro. I am sure if will get them they will give us result rather than falcao,cavani,lewandoski,shurrle and co…. Let take a look at something didier drodga 4 instance he started when nobody knows him. So look at him now he now our legend. Up blues.

    Di matteo to know that one man can never make a forest, if him to sign striker, he should sign at least two striker, like falcao n bony, n torres should be sell in any amount inorder to land dis strikers.
