Chelsea To Reward Maurizio Sarri With The Signing Of A New Striker In January

Chelsea's fantastic start to the season under Maurizio Sarri could be turned up a notch heading into the second half of the season.

The Blues are third in the Premier League and are two points behind leaders Manchester City and second-placed Liverpool.

However, it looks like Chelsea are serious about mounting a challenge for the league title and will provide the extra funds needed for the 59-year-old Italian manager to bolster his striking options.

The Daily Mail reports that the London club will make a move for Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi and Genoa's Krzysztof Piątek.

The Inter striker has a £97.5m release clause in his current contract, though the Italian club are in the process of negotiating a new and improved deal for their in-form player.

The 25-year-old Argentine helped his side secure Champions League qualification last season, along with scoring 29 times in Serie A to become the league's top scorer for the 2017-18 campaign.

Former England manager Fabio Capello rates the Inter forward highly and has named him as the player that Real Madrid should sign.

Piątek, who is already a target for Barcelona, completed a move from Cracovia to Genoa for €4m last season.

The 23-year-old Polish striker has become the first player to score seven times in their first seven appearances in Serie A since Gabriel Batistuta.

There's no doubt that both options would allow the former Napoli boss to add competition for Olivier Giroud and Álvaro Morata.

Chelsea were able to secure a late draw against Manchester United over the weekend.
