Chelsea managed to sign a number of midfielder and defenders during the January transfer window but the ultimate goal that Jose Mourinho wanted to secure was the acquisition of a forward that can help them secure the Premier League title.
The side of Jose Mourinho is currently located at the top of the Premier League but they are the club that has scored fewer goals out of the 4 teams that are fighting alongside them and this can be due to the fact that neither Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o or Demba Ba have managed to score goals on a consistent basis in this season.
Eden Hazard and Oscar are midfielders and they are the top goal-scorers from Chelsea of the current campaign. This is a sign of just how much the forwards of the club are struggling to find the back of the net.
Diego Costa of Atletico Madrid is enjoying a sensational season as he is the main engine behind the recent success of his club as they fight for the top spots of the Spanish league, La Liga alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Brazilian forward is a high-profile target of many clubs around Europe including Chelsea. It is believed that Chelsea are ready to include Fernando Torres in a deal that would be seeing Costa joining the Premier League club while Torres sees his way Into Atletico Madrid, if the deal does actually happen.
During the January transfer window, Chelsea failed to sign the Brazilian forward from Atletico Madrid but they are working on making a new offer for Costa in the summer and Fernando Torres is likely to be used as bait in order To make the deal go forward.
