Chelsea boss to pick one of Premier League trio as Diego Costa partner

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will chose one of either Loic Remy, Romelu Lukaku, or Wilfried Bony to partner incoming striker Diego Costa, Daily Star reports.

The Portuguese boss will wait until the World Cup finishes before he decides on a second striker next season.

The Blues and Atletico Madrid have already agreed on a deal to bring Costa over on a £35million deal, but is still unsure on whom to bring to play alongside the Brazilian-born star.

Swansea striker Wilfried Bony and French hitman Loic Remy have been impressive for their respective clubs last season, and Mourinho will be monitoring their progress during this summer’s World Cup.

The former Real Madrid boss is also considering Lukaku, who was on loan at Everton last season, to be the club’s second striker.

Lukaku has however clashed with Mourinho this time last year, when ‘The Special One’ couldn’t guarantee a starting place for the Belgian striker.

So unless Lukaku has a brilliant World Cup, it seems Mourinho will go for one of either Bony or Remy up front.

Bony scored an impressive 25 goals in his debut season in the Premier League, while Remy hit 14 league goals during his time on-loan at Newcastle.
