Chelsea boss still keen on new signing

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho still wants to add one more striker to his squad before the close of the transfer window tomorrow night, according to the Daily Mail.

The Blues signed Samuel Eto’o from Anzhi on Thursday but Mourinho is still not happy with the quality of strikers at his disposal.

Fernando Torres scored in their Super Cup defeat to Bayern Munich on Friday but Romelu Lukaku came on and made little impact before missing the crucial penalty and Demba Ba is likely to be farmed out on loan with Newcastle United the likely destination.

With the deadline drawing ever closer it is possible that Chelsea will once again have to overpay to land their man as they did with Fernando Torres two years ago.

Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski and Real Madrid’s Karin Benzema are the two names that Mourinho has been linked with and last ditch bids may well be placed within the next 24 hours for the pair.
