Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea are now said to be monitoring Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye over the possibility of bringing him to England. Since the departure of Spanish striker Diego Costa who has joined Atletico Madrid, Chelsea are yet to sign a replacement for the Spaniard.
The Blues are currently short of striking personnel following the injury of Alvaro Morata who has been superb since joining Chelsea from Real Madrid.
Antonio Conte has reportedly identified Ghanaian forward Richmond Boakye as a good replacement for Diego Costa and wants the club to sign him in January 2018. The 24-year-old hit-man has already scored 10 goals and grabbed three assists in his 16 matches so far this campaign.
Another positive news for Antonio Conte is that he already knows Boakye well after signing him for Juventus back in 2012.
