Chelsea are in desperate need for a striker or maybe even a few, as at the moment Fernando Torres has no real backup. With Daniel Sturridge going to Liverpool and Romelu Lukaku staying on loan there is no question that management will be busy in January. Sunday, Sky Sports reported that Newcastle Striker Demba Ba was meeting with Chelsea officials over a 7 million pound move. Talks were then reported as unsuccessful when Ba's wage demands were brought up. Whatever the wages may be Chelsea may want to pay his amount wanted as there is slim to no chance that they will find a bargain like this. Look for talks to resume in the coming days.
