As we’ve said before it seems that Roberto Martinez is desperate to land a Chelsea striker this summer.

Both Romelu Lukaku and Samuel Eto’o have previously been linked by the British media.

It goes without saying that following his season long loan spell at Goodison Park that Romelu Lukaku is Everton’s first choice target this summer.

But if that doesn’t come off then at 33-years-old recently released Samuel Eto’o could be a target boasting an impressive honours role which includes over 100 international caps, over 50 international goals for Cameroon, 2 African Cup of Nations titles, 1 Olympic gold medal, 3 UEFA Champions League medals, two with Barcelona and one with Inter Milan, 3 Spanish titles and 1 Italian title. However with Arsenal, Galatasaray and Besiktas firmly linked Martinez could be forced to look elsewhere.

It would seem according to ClubCall, that Martinez doesn’t really want to look far and is remaining in the Chelsea dressing room for this third target Chelsea striker Demba Ba.

Like Lukaku, he doesn’t appear to be high in Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge.

The 29-year-old made the £7million move in January 2013 and has made just 16 Premier League starts for Chelsea, overall he has made 51 appearances scoring 14 times, failing to match the sensational form that earned him the move to Chelsea.

At Newcastle Ba made 54 Premier League appearances (51 starts) scoring 29 goals. If Everton could rekindle that form then he would make a super summer signing.
