Chelsea reportedly want to bolster their attacking options with the signing of Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye. 

According to Darren Lewis of the Daily Mirror, the Blues are poised to scout the player when his team take on Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League in a pair of upcoming matches. It’s suggested Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has long been an admirer of the Ghana international.

“He first came to Conte’s attention five years ago when he had a brief spell at Juventus,” said Lewis. “The Italian is now exploring options for more firepower in the January transfer window with Alvaro Morata’s current hamstring injury exposing the lack of depth up front for Chelsea.”

Lewis reported Conte still has doubts about Michy Batshuayi’s ability to lead the line despite his excellent goalscoring record. Alvaro Morata has shone since arriving at the club, but he is injured and beyond the two there is little depth in the squad.

Boakye would be an interesting option for the Blues. He’s been in brilliant form for the Serbian outfit this season, scoring 14 goals in 13 games this calendar year. Here’s a look at what he can offer:
