Premier League Transfer News — 24 March 2013

Radamel Falcao is being linked with a summer move to Premier League ChelseaChelsea are being linked with summer moves for Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic and Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.

A potential move for Falcao could involve Chelsea striker Fernando Torres joining Atleti as part of a swap deal.


Both strikers are in-demand. Jovetic has been in fine form for Fiorentina in Serie A scoring 12 goals in 24 appearances for the Viola. The highly-rated Montenegrin will get to showcase his skills against England on Tuesday night in a World Cup qualifier.

Jovetic has also been linked with moves to other Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester City. No doubt scouts from all three English clubs will be watching the England game with a keen eye to see if they believe that Jovetic would be a good signing for their club.

Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao is regarded as one of the top strikers in the world. The 27 year-old has been a prolific scorer of goals in Spain with Atleti and before that with Porto in Portugal.

Falcao was the star of the show in Atletico’s 4-1 European Super Cup victory over Chelsea last year and is regarded as one of the clubs top summer transfer targets. Falcao is also a wanted man though with Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG all vying for his summer signature.


Falcao will be a very expensive acquisition for any club he moves to in the summer. Chelsea maybe looking to bring the cost down by including former-Atletico captain Fernando Torres in a summer move for Falcao.

Torres has endured a miserable two years at Chelsea since joining the Blues from Liverpool for a British record fee of £50million. The Spanish international looks in need of a change and a move back home could be the ideal move for Torres to rediscover his top form.

Which striker should Chelsea sign this summer?
