Chelsea are closing in on a £95m mega-move for their former striker Romelu Lukaku, who looks set to join from Inter later this week.
It's well-documented that the Blues have made some stinking decisions of player exits in the past, having let likes of Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah and Manchester City talisman Kevin de Bruyne leave prematurely, as well as Lukaku, who has scored 160 goals in 286 club games since his 2014 departure.
Now, Chelsea look set to have another chance with the Belgian goal-machine, who is now close to completing his eagerly-awaited return to Stamford Bridge ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season kicking off this weekend.
Here, we take a look at every striker Chelsea have signed since Lukaku left to join Everton back in 2014, and rank them from least to most successful:
1. 11th - Alexandre Pato
All I can remember about the Brazilian's brief loan period is my sister, on her wedding day, shooting daggers at my father as he, during the speeches, hissed "1-0, Pato!" to me from the top table, as the Brazilian's penalty put Chelsea ahead on his debut. That was one of only two appearances for the Blues. Photo: OLI SCARFF
2. 10th - Radamel Falcao
Boy, does Roman Abramovich love a former great who's past their best. You should see him down at Fortnum & Mason food hall on a Sunday evening, raiding the reduced aisle - an absolute fiend. Like a packet of mince starting take on a greyish tinge, the Colombian striker was listless during his loan spell at Stamford Bridge, scoring just once in twelve bleak outings. Photo: Alex Livesey
3. 9th - Dider Drogba
Alright, calm down! This is the Ivorian legend's long-forgotten, SECOND spell at Stamford Bridge, not the glorious first - hence the low ranking. Returning to the club in 2014, an absolutely knackered looking Drogba scored just seven goals in forty games, before leaving for Montreal Impact the following summer. Photo: Clive Mason
4. 8th - Gonzalo Higuain
The Argentinean lumbered his way through a largely uninspiring loan spell with the Blues - do they never learn?! - but he did at least score a twice in a game against Huddersfield Town which, if he's being honest, has to be up there with the three consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus, or the winning of six trophies with Real Madrid.
