With less than a month to the end of the summer transfer window, Chelsea's search for a dependable central striker has not yet been successful.

With the search narrowed to Erling Haarland, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku , all hope seems to have been dashed in getting the services of these lethal strikers.

Borussia Dortmund, the employer of Erling Haarland has pointedly told Chelsea that their goal poacher is going nowhere especially after losing his 'twin' brother, Jadon Sancho to Manchester United in a £73.5 million swoop.

Harry Kane has decided to hold his destiny in his hand by opting to decide for himself where he'll be going at the end of the summer transfer window. Chelsea, unfortunately, is not in his plans.

Since the beginning of the pre season training, Harry Kane has not shown up at his North London club, Tottenham Hotspur thus fuelling speculation that he's not likely to return to the club according to Talksport.

He had told his coach that he has ambition of winning silverware this coming season and a move outside Tottenham will make him realise his dream.

With £250 million , Manchester City is aiming for a double swoop for Harry Kane and Aston Villa's captain, Jack Grealish as the club plans to replace Sergio Kun Aguero who has moved to Barcelona football club of Spain.

And despite making an improved offer for Romelu Lukaku with £85 million plus Marcos Alonso, Inter Milan has, once again, rejected Chelsea's bid for Inter Milan's goal merchant according to Skysports.

At this stage, it is imperative for Chelsea to remove their search light from these elusive players and start looking beyond them for a deadly finisher. The following players can meet Chelsea's expectations in the new season:


1. GERARD MORENO

The 29 year old Spaniard and Villarreal football club danger man was the 2nd highest goal scorer in the La Liga last season with 23 goals. In the Europa league campaign last season, he scored 7 goals making him one of the deadliest striker in Europe. He has a total of 30 goals in his name last season.

A natural central striker, Moreno could be the ideal No 9 striker Chelsea might need to solve its endless search for a deadly finisher.

With a career total appearances of 364 matches , Moreno has scored 146 goals and 43 assists according to Transfer market. com.

With a Super cup assignment on hand against Chelsea, Moreno's Villarreal could possibly wait after the conclusion of the Super Cup final match on the 11th, August, 2021 before reaching an agreement.


2. LUIS MURIEL

The 30 year old Atalanta forward has 22 goals in his name in the European league's highest goal scorers list.

The Colombian could be a perfect replacement for Erling Haarland, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku if Chelsea could speak to Atalanta in the language the club will understand.

With a total of 376 matches career appearances, 128 goals and 56 assists, Muriel has been on loan in the past to Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Sevilla according to transfer market.com and could be the solution to Chelsea's lingering search for a deadly finisher in the new season.


3. DUSAN VLAHOVIC

Left-footed 21 year old Serbian has been a force in netting the goals for Fiorentina of Italy. With 21 goals for Fiorentina in Serie A last season, Dusan has age on his side.

Last year , he appeared in Serbia national team colours making him one of the youngest player to have played at national level for Serbia.

With a total 133 matches in career appearances, 52 goals and 6 assists according to transfer market.com, Dusan , as a central striker, has all it takes to solve Chelsea's lingering central striker problem.
