Everyone attached with Chelsea Football Club is well aware of the fact that quality reinforcements are needed if the Blues hope to retain the league title this season.
According to reports, Chelsea are linked with a move for highly rated French international Alexandre Lacazette. Express claim that Mourinho is keen to sign the Lyon forward who scored over 30 goals for the Ligue 1 side last season.
The 24-year-old Les Bleus star extended his contract over a week ago and after letting Njie join Spurs, it is highly unlikely that Lyon will let their main man leave this summer as well.
As per the provided Express link, Lacazette is rated around $33 million. Mourinho normally utilizes a lone striker formation. however, if Lacazette does arrive, the Portuguese manager may make changes to the system.
