Radamel Falcao will not be joining Chelsea in the January transfer window as the club believe that the striker’s asking price is too high and they will now turn their attention elsewhere – that’s according to the Daily Mirror.
The European Champions seem desperate to add some more attacking options to their squad, with Fernando Torres being the main man to lead the line at the moment and he is not in the best of form.
It was thought that Roman Abramovich would do all he could to bring Falcao to the English Premier League, but the transfer fee of £46 million seems to be more that what the Londoners are willing to pay.
Instead, the Blues look set to turn their attention to long-term target Loic Remy of Marseille, who is reportedly worth around the £15 million mark.
The other option is Porto’s Colombian front-man Jackson Martinez, who has scored nine goals in as many matches in Portugal’s top flight.
Martinez has also netted 14 times in all competition and Porto may have a fight on their hands to keep one of their prized assets in the New Year. £20 million is the fee that the Portuguese club look to value him at.
