Chelsea eyeing attacking duo in January squad overhaul

Chelsea are claimed in the Express as eyeing two strike-additions in the coming window, with Javier Hernandez and Paco Alcacer on their radar.

The Blues have stuttered through the opening months of the season, and manager Jose Mourinho is said to be looking to make wholesale changes to his squad in the winter window.

Chelsea are now being linked with a move for former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, who joined Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

The Mexican has already scored 12 goals for his new club, and is being eyed as an alternative to first-choice Diego Costa, who has struggled to hit the back of the net in recent months.

The Premier League champions are also looking to bring in Paco Alcacer, who was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer, before signing a new five-year deal with Valencia.

The 22 year-old is now a regular in the Spain international side, and has scored six goals in his 10 appearances.
