English Premier League side Chelsea are looking to seal a deal for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Junior Moraes ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

The Blues are looking forward to having that competition in the team with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud not in goalscoring form as they hope to mount pressure for the Premier League title after defeating league leaders Man City at the weekend.

The Brazilian has been tipped to be the best option for the job as he has got lots of qualities to give a good fight and deliver goals at the Stamford Bridge in the second half of the season.

According to reports, manager Maurizio Sarri is a big fan of the striker and will do all it takes within his power to convince the club management into having his signature come January.

This season alone, he has scored a total of 16 goals and made 7 assists in all competitions which is an impressive stat that no one has been able to acquire in the Chelsea team.

Although he has got a release clause of £5 million in his contract that will be due by 2020, suggestions are that Junior Moraes will only leave the club at a far higher price.
