It's been another week of speculation and rumour for all of us. All sorts of names are being linked with moves in and out of our club but I wanted to get your thoughts on what is being reported as our new strike force for next season.
First and foremost like all of you, I am pleased that Diego Costa has come out and played down the recent speculation that he was unhappy in England because he was unable to settle. He remains our number one at the club.
With Didier Drogba leaving the club, Chelsea are actively looking for a replacement. You would have read by now that Chelsea are in talks with Radamel Falcao and his agent who is the same agent that looks after Jose Mourinho - Jorge Mendes. Make of that what you will, but it's more than likely going to happen after Jose Mourinho openly admitted to being an admirer of the Colombian who appeared to lose his way at Manchester United.
According to various reports now, Chelsea have entered the race for Charlie Austin of QPR who is currently with England. With QPR relegated, it's believed that the player feels that he has proven ability in the Premier League and wants a move from our West London neighbours who were relegated last season.
On his way out - Loic Remy.
With Slaven Bilic appointed as the new manager of West Ham United and Alan Pardew using the summer to bring in players he wants to for the first time at Crystal Palace, it seems that Loic Remy is a player wanted by both clubs as they look to bolster their current squads.
Having signed for Chelsea for a fee of around £8m, it's being reported that as much as £18m could be offered to Chelsea to tempt them into selling. Will Chelsea take more than double the profit from someone who has proven himself in the league time and time again?
So what do you people think - Austin, Costa and Falcao next season? I personally would keep Remy alongside Costa and Falcao!
I would love to hear as many opinions on this as possible.
