Comparing Falcao To The Current Chelsea Strikers After Reports Of A £60m

For me, Chelsea’s Achilles heel right now is their front line. Although Samuel Eto’o seems to have found his shooting boots, the Blues have still only scored three goals this season between their trio of strikers, so this will be some welcome news for Blues fans, if you believe it. The Mirror suggest thatChelsea are ready to offer £60m for the services of Radamel Falcao, but how does he compare to the current crop?

For me, Chelsea’s Achilles heel right now is their front line. Although Samuel Eto’o seems to have found his shooting boots, the Blues have still only scored three goals this season between their trio of strikers, so this will be some welcome news for Blues fans, if you believe it. The Mirror suggest thatChelsea are ready to offer £60m for the services of Radamel Falcao, but how does he compare to the current crop?

Eto’o has scored twice in the league this term, Torres once, while Demba Ba hasn’t found the net at all. Falcao, who has played the vast majority of Monaco’s season in Ligue 1, has scored nine goals in 13 games for his new club.

Torres gets the crown for shot accuracy (67%) while Ba and Falcao sit on 60%, although the latter has had far more efforts on goal. Eto’o is the least accurate with 57% of his 14 attempts hitting the target.

Falcao’s pass accuracy is far beyond anything that the Chelsea trio can match, Falcao (85%), Eto’o (73%), Ba (71%), Torres (62%), and he has also made the most key passes with seven, although Torres is close behind on six.

Falcao is fancied as one of the best forwards in world football, so to land him in January or even in the summer would be a huge move for Mourinho.
