Forget January deal for Wilson, Sarri needs to sign up £200 million Spurs man Kane for Chelsea
There has been some reports which have claimed Chelsea are lining up a move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, but they should really be looking to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
Wilson has been in sensational form this term, scoring seven goals and providing four further assists, having overcome the effects of two serious knee ligament injuries in the last three years.
It is a contrast to the fortunes of Chelsea’s current front-two, who are struggling in front of goal this season. Olivier Giroud has started a number of games for the Blues but has so far failed to score, while Alvaro Morata has only recently started finding the net for Chelsea, netting five-goals in his last six games.
And with Maurizio Sarri looking to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League and Europa League titles this season, the Daily Mirror website have claimed the Italian boss has had scouts watch Wilson on a number of occasions as he ponders a January move.
However, Chelsea have a transfer kitty that can match any side around Europe and they have the ability to splash £200 million on just one player, and then a few more million to improve other key areas of the pitch.
So rather than go for the likes of Wilson, Gonzalo Higuain or even Mauro Icardi, Sarri should try and convince the Blues hierarchy to splash the cash and land Kane from Spurs.
Kane is one of the best strikers on the planet, not just the Premier League and will guarantee Sarri 30-plus goals a season, something the Blues have been missing for a number of years.
Yes he picks up a few injuries here or there and needs the creativity behind him to finish goals, but he also works as hard for Spurs as any player in the Tottenham side, and with him in the squad, Spurs can win games at any moment.
And the fact Chairman Daniel Levy is a businessman means that Chelsea can actually complete a deal for Kane if they offer a fee in excess of £200 million, which is the fee most clubs will have to pay to acquire Kane from Tottenham.
Chelsea will also be losing the goals that Eden Hazard supplies every season as the little Belgian is heavily tipped to pack his bags and leave the club to fulfil his dreams of playing for Real Madrid, winning the Champions League and trying to claim the Ballon D’or crown, which has been dominated by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo over the last few seasons.
So if Chelsea are looking to land a world class striker to help them win the Premier League, why are they looking at average players when the answer is staring him in the face?
