Diego Costa has been a shadow of himself this seasonMuch has been said about Chelsea’s dismal campaign as reigning champions this season. However, it is the alarming drop in form of their star striker Diego Costa that has left Blues fans all over scratching their heads trying to comprehend this sudden fall from grace experienced by the Brazil-born Spanish striker.To make matters worse, rumours of a supposed quarrel between him and manager Jose Mourinho have only fuelled claims that the former Atletico Madrid striker is on his way out of the club. Here are 5 strikers that could serve as replacements for Costa at Chelsea.
#5 Saido Berahino
The English forward may not have set the Premier League alight this year as he had the season before but he still remains one of English football’s brightest talents. Quick on the ball and in possession of a brilliant right foot, the West Bromwich Albion man is still one of the Premier League’s brightest young strikers.
While not as prolific as the top of the crop in the EPL, Berahino has the added advantage of being accustomed to the Premier League along with increasing Chelsea’s quotient of homegrown players in their squad.
Also, at just 22 years of age, the young striker is only just getting started in the world of football and has plenty left to give.
