The Blues look set to overhaul their ailing front line this summer following the arrival of new boss Jose Mourinho, but which player should be top of their wishlist?POLL
New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho appears eager to overhaul his striking department this summer, and has a number of potential targets to choose from.
Top of that list is Edinson Cavani, who is the subject of a £54 million player-plus-cash bid from the Europa League winners, with Fernando Torres offered in part-exchange for the Napoli forward.
Mourinho was also full of praise for Manchester United's want-away striker Wayne Rooney, advising him to do “what makes him happy” amid increasing interest in the 27-year-old.
After losing out on Radamel Falcao to Monaco, Goal understands that Chelsea have also added Fiorentina's Stevan Jovetic to their striker shortlist.
Chelsea have stuttered up front for a while, with Demba Ba scoring just two league goals following his January move to Stamford Bridge, while Torres struck a marginally better eight times. But, which new striker should Chelsea sign to fix their misfiring frontline?

Should Chelsea go for the explosive but out-of-form Rooney, the prolific Cavani – who topped the Serie A scoring charts with 29 goals – or pluck for the potential of the 23-year-old Jovetic?
All three players have their strengths, but which one could fire Chelsea back to the summit of English football? Which player do they need the most?
