Three strikers that can replace transfer bound Diego Costa

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been fervently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge next summer but finding a player to replace the Spain international is not going to be an herculean tax. Since joining Chelsea from Atletico Madrid, the Brazilian has consistently proved his mettle.

Costa is currently tied on second place with Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez on the EPL goal scorers chart with 19goals – which has been instrumental in firing us to the top of the table. This would not be the first season he’d be reaching the 20goal margin. In his first season with us, he had a bag of 20 Epl goals.

At 28,  and at the twilight of his career, you’d expect a much younger but more potent striker to take his place as we set to play in the Champions League of next season. Although, Morata  and Lukaku have been strongly linked with a move for us, we take a swipe and two other strikers that can take his place next season.

Alexis Sanchez

The Chilean Arsenal striker has stalled over contract extension talks with Arsenal. He must have been unpleasantly shock at the way the London club have failed to progress as  a club since he joined in 2014. The workaholic striker has been linked with a move for us but he’s of same age with Costa, however, if Zlatan can be playing actively, much can still be expected from Sanchez.

He can play on the flanks but most of his goals for Arsenal this season came when he was played as the centre forward. He is currently one of the best strikers in the Premier League but his biggest undoing is his inability to release the ball on time which can still be corrected by Conte.

Morata Alvaro

Among our pick, Morata is top choice and i think he’d fit in easily into our team. The Spaniard has found playing time scarce with Los Blancos this term and desires to salvage his career outside the Santiago Bernabeu.

According to this report, He has already agreed personal terms with us and will complete a move in the summer. He wants to link up with Conte who is an admirer of the goal poacher.

Despite the poor form of Benzema, Zidane has favoured him more than Morata who seem to have a better goal return per game than the aforementioned French.

Romero Lukaku

Currently the leading scorer in the Premier League. The Belgian is enjoying the form of his life and has been tagged with a colossal transfer sum.

Lukaku has refused to sign a contract extension with the Merseyside club as he wants to play Champions League football. He was sold by Chelsea to Everton and he wants to stage a come-back.

He has been dubbed as the new Drogba given his pace and dexterity.
