Spaniard and Valencia goal poacher Paco Alcacer has emerged as a January transfer target for EPL defending champions Chelsea. This is due to failure of their attacking trio of Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Radamel Facao to deliver goals this season.
The aforementioned trio woeful performances had led to Chelsea’s low goal tally with just five goals to their names. Diego costa was very instrumental to Chelsea’s winning double trophies last season with his 20 goals but the controversial striker seems to have lost focus and concentration in finding the back of the net this season.
Young Valencia striker Alcacer could be wearing the Blues kit next winter should Roman Abramovich be willing to sanction his mammoth €80m buyout clause.
The calm and clinical hit man scored a total of 22 goals for the La Liga side last season and he also has five goals in La Liga already this season. The arrival of Alcacer to Chelsea would automatically mean either Remy or Falcao would have to exit the bridge in other to accommodate the highly talented striker.
However, the major challenge Chelsea would have is meeting up his release clause which seems too large for a 22-year old strike,r who still has a lot to learn.
