The January transfer window is gradually approaching the end, and the Blues are yet to make any signings so far.

However, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that the club is keen on strengthening the squad especially in the attacking area.

Former Chelsea and Manchester United stars Joe Cole and Paul Ince both agree that Wolves striker Raul Jimenez should be the ‘first name’ on Chelsea’s transfer list. The 28-year-old has 10 goals and six assists in 22 Premier League starts this season, and they believe that the top clubs should be going for him.

Ince told BT Sport: “He’s got all the attributes you want to be a world-class striker.

“You think about Totteham need a striker, United are looking for striker, Chelsea now… it’s surprising that his name is not being thrown about.”

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole added: “Wolves fans won’t thank me for saying it but if I’m Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United and you’ve got a chequebook ready to go, he’s the first name.

“If you want someone to make an instant impact on your team, you want someone to tick boxes, who knows the league, knows the flow of English football.

“It’s all well and good being part of a project but when Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham come for you, it may turn your head.

“For me, he could quite easily play for any one of those teams because he’s got so much ability. He’s one of my favourite players to watch.”
