After several months of rumors connecting Chelsea with striker Andrej Kramaric, the striker is finally set to make his move to England. Unfortunately for Chelsea fans hoping to see Kramaric join the Blues though, the Croatian will join Leicester City on a permanent deal as opposed to becoming a member of Chelsea's loan army.

DiMarzio is still reporting that the Kramaric deal is simply a precursor to a Chelsea switch, with a deal already agreed between the two Premier League sides. Whether or not that's the case is something unlikely to be confirmed by either club during the January window, but if Andrej adapts well to the English game, I'm sure we'll hear a bit more about the situation.

For now though, we'll all be able to get a better look at the player we've been linked to, and reach a more informed opinion as to whether or not he'd be a good option to replace DIdier Drogba in the squad next season. That, of course, is assuming Drogba decides to hang up his boots, which I sort of hope doesn't ever happen.
