The latest striker linked to Chelsea by the rumour mill is Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski.
The Polish ace is unlikely to move to Stamford Bridge however, considering the raise he was recently given by Dortmund in a bid to keep him there happily for one more season.
The Blues also continue to be linked to transfer moves for either Wayne Rooney or Samuel Eto’o, with manager Jose Mourinho having admitted that his attack is the one area he wants to augment as a priority.
However, there is already a potentially world class frontman biding his time at the Bridge- Belgian battering ram Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku has returned from his successful loan spell at West Brom, and is ready to challenge Chelsea’s current strikers- Fernando Torres and Demba Ba- and whoever else arrives, in his bid to become the club’s go-to centre-forward.
"Every player wants to be in the best team there is," Lukaku said confidently.
"If a player can improve us, why not? Samuel Eto'o, Wayne Rooney, I have heard everyone.
“I am not scared. Let them come."
Lukaku was dismayed after moving to Chelsea as a teenager with his path to regular game time barred.
But he has clearly been soothed by Jose Mourinho, who and is now willing to wait for his chance to shine, having started Chelsea’s first two league games on the bench.
"I'm getting closer to where I need to be and hopefully also closer to the starting line-up, my main ambition," Lukaku said.
"If I keep working hard, like I'm doing now, showing the talent that I have, hopefully I get to start in the next game.
"Compared to the first year, when I arrived here it was all about learning and taking a bit off all the players, now it's about starting games."
