Chelsea show interest in Lorient striker Vincent Aboubakar

Share

The summer transfer window is shaping up nicely for Chelsea. The Blues have already agreed a deal to sign Diego Costa, who has also complete his medical. So, it is just a case of formality now.

Strike force is one department where Jose Mourinho is keen to add new faces in the summer. While the Londoners may well keep Fernando Torres, the future of both Ba and Lukaku seems to lie away from the Bridge.

abou cam1 After Costa, Chelsea turn their attention to yet another striker

According to reports from French newspaper L’Equipe, Chelsea have shown interest in Lorient striker Vincent Aboubakar. The 22-year-old has a contract till 2016, and enjoyed his best season last term, bagging 16 goals for Lorient. 

The striker is not a finished product yet but has great potential to be up there among top strikers, if he’s properly nurtured. He has a strong physical presence that allows him to create space to engineer smart passes/moves (bagged six assists last term) for team-mates.

Coupled with that, he makes the best use of his physical presence with brilliant technical abilities. Naturally comfortable on both feet, he has good dribbling skills and positional awareness as well. And he would cost around €5m. 

The Cameroon striker is currently focussing on World Cup duties and will make a decision on his future after that.

  1. Why to signing this player while we already have Lukaku?

  2. I like Lukaku but one thing he needs to add to his goal scoring prowess is foot work(skills). This will make him the star José want …

  3. Don’t search for what we already have lukaku is the man we are looking for

  6. It will be a shame if lukaku is loan out again,i believe he should stay why ba and torres must leave.

  7. We dnt want any striker afterall we’v agreed wit Costa nd we av Lukaku

  8. Jose should make players sign not just identifying them because other clubs may come in and take them.Act fast jose!!

  9. Leave costa and lukaku to be pairing each other

  10. If there is one thig that i like about Morinho______ He believes in African Players. In Lakaku____ his attitude is counting against him, He is starting to become big_headed ever since he found out that there are clubs who are interested in his services.

  11. no more striker after all we have lukaku

  12. JM should leave Lukaku at the bridge at least this season and see how is going to perform, and see if he can allow him go please Jose.

  13. Let’s give lukaku a chance.Is it true Drogba is coming back?
