Mourinho claims no striker will be coming in January

Denis Doyle

The boss reiterated that we won't be seeing a January move for someone to lead the line

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Chelsea will not be adding a striker in January, despite the sudden windfall from the transfers of Juan Mata and Kevin De Bruyne.

The boss has been fairly clear in the past that we'll be seeing a signing this summer, and the continued insistence that we're not making a January move would lead me to believe that we've already got a summer target in mind.

Who this summer target is is something that Mourinho didn't even hint at, but if he's telling the truth, we'll be seeing out the season with the trio of Samuel Eto'o, Demba Ba' and Fernando Torres. That won't stop the inevitable January rumors though.
