Chelsea: Offload Ba And Make A Move For Edin Dzeko

He finished at Manchester City’s top Premier League scorer last season with 14 goals despite managing just nine full games all term.  He single handedly dragged his nation Bosnia to their first World Cup in their history which will take place in the summer. He has also scored 16 goals this season, six of which have been in the league this time round, though he is probably City’s third choice striker. Edin Dzeko is of course the man I refer to, and I am about to suggest why Jose Mourinho should be picking up the phone and trying to get him down to Chelsea.

Dzeko has never been one to complain, though he has had every right to over the past few seasons. He has never been fancied as one of the main men at the Etihad, nor has he been popular with the fans, but no one can argue with his goal tally.

Chelsea, in my opinion, are in need of a centre-forward with a physical presence but one who score a hatful of goals on top. Demba Ba has the former, but certainly hasn’t suggested that the latter is coming any time soon.

Dzeko can play with his back to goal, can spin in behind defenders and can also create when stuck up top on his own, and he creates space when playing with a partner. He has proven that he can bounce off the nimble players at City, the likes of Samir Nasri and David Silva, so he would surely have no problem fitting in with Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar down in the capital.

City fans may not rate him, but I certainly do.
