Recent reports suggested Chelsea could sign Robert Lewandowski this summer, but an overwhelming majority of fans would prefer to sign Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi.
This summer is absolutely crucial for Chelsea. If the Blues get the right manager in, sign two or three world class players and keep Eden Hazard, it’s hard to imagine a world where they aren’t back challenging for the title.
To challenge the elite goalscoring power of Manchester City though, they are going to need some serious attacking firepower of their own.
Diego Costa showed he’s still got it during Spain’s 3-3 draw with Portugal last week, and fans are hoping they dump any plans for Lewandowski and sign the Costa-like Icardi instead.

Alvaro Morata was brought in last summer to be the direct replacement for Costa, but the young Spaniard just doesn’t have that killer edge that the likes of Costa and Icardi have.
Icardi, who was left out of Argentina’s World Cup squad over concerns about his behaviour, has been mentioned as a Chelsea target in the past, and is much younger than Lewandowski, perhaps the main reason fans are so heavily in favour of the Argentine.
After an incredible 29 goals in 34 league games last season, a whopping 90 per cent of fans voted for Icardi over a move for the 95-cap Polish superstar.
