Maurizio Sarri intends to reinforce his attacking department in January as Chelsea aim to challenge Manchester City, Tottenham, and Liverpool for the Premier League title
The Blues have aggregated 28 points after the opening 13 EPL fixtures, as they currently trail the Citizens by seven points.
However, it is evident Eden Hazard, Willian, and Pedro lack a prolific goalscorer in the final third because both Morata and Giroud failed to live up to expectations this campaign.
The Spaniard and the Frenchman have scored six goals altogether, while Hazard notched seven goals on his own. Therefore, Sarri became aware he needs to land a striker who can guarantee at least ten goals in the second half of the season.
According to the Daily Mail, the Pensioners have identified the Serie A duo, Mauro Icardi and Krzysztof Piatek, the top targets for the January transfer window.
Considering the Nerazzurri price their captain at staggering £97.5m, Genoa’s wonder seems to be a more feasible solution.
Although it is still uncertain how much would the Liguria-based outfit ask for their headline performer, Piatek’s market value is currently set at £30m.
The 23-year-old striker has bagged 13 goals in ten top-flight outings for the Griffin, which has earned him his first Poland national team call-up.
