Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter get up to date football-related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

According to the Sun claims Chelsea will reportedly break the bank in signing a new striker when the January transfer window opens.

Alvaro Morata is reportedly set to leave Chelsea, with Mauro Icardi and Patrick Cutrone identified as possible replacements for the misfiring striker.

It is understood Icardi is said to be the Blues’ No.1 choice to replace the Spaniard in January.

However, if a move for the Argentine fails, Maurizio Sarri is also reported to be interested in AC Milan prospect Cutrone.

The claims were made by The Sun, who say Chelsea have lost patience with Morata, signed from Real Madrid for £65million in summer 2017.

If a deal for Icardi — who has five goals in eight games this season — cannot be reached, Maurizio Sarri is ready to battle Tottenham for highly-rated Milan forward Cutrone.

Cutrone is one of the rising stars of Italian football and would cost around £25million in January despite playing less than 30 games in Serie A.

The 20-year-old has 11 senior goals and plays as a traditional No9. He has played throughout the Italian youth teams and made his senior debut against Argentina in March.
