The one Group F player Chelsea should sign after the World Cup

Nigeria Flag

The World Cup group stage is over, and many players have caught the eye with their impressive displays ahead of the transfer window.

Group F was the tale of one giant and three hopefuls, as Argentina were dragged through the group by Lionel Messi, leaving Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria to scrap for second place. With one win, one draw and one defeat, it was Nigeria who went through to the last 16, following up their 2013 African Cup of Nations win with a decent World Cup campaign.

Unsurprisingly, Messi's heroics for Argentina have stolen the headlines in Group F, but with three smaller nations also in the group, it has provided a great platform for some unknown players to make names for themselves, such as Bosnia's Muhamed Besic and Nigeria's Juwon Oshaniwa – but Chelsea should be looking to sign one of the bigger names from the group.

After watching Samuel Eto'o, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres all struggle to find the back of the net on a regular basis last season, Blues boss Jose Mourinho must add a striker this summer, and whilst Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa looks set to arrive at Stamford Bridge, the exit of Eto'o and possible departures of Ba and Torres mean more than one striker must be bought.

One of the latest names to be linked is Fenerbahce's Emmanuel Emenike, who has been featuring as the lone frontman for Nigeria at the World Cup. The 27-year-old may not have found the back of the net in Brazil yet, but Chelsea should still look to pursue a deal for the former Spartak Moscow hit man.

With 33 goals in 60 games during his time with Spartak and Fenerbahce, Emenike has been prolific in recent years – but needs to prove himself in one of the top European league before being considered as one of the most dangerous strikers around. With a devastating combination of pace and power, Emenike looks like being ideal for Mourinho's Chelsea, and the Blues could be just the team to hand him a chance in England.

Arsenal and Tottenham have been linked with a move for him, but Chelsea reportedly submitted a £16m bid last week in order to snap him up – and whilst he hasn't hit the back of the net in Brazil, Chelsea should still go ahead with their bid for Emenike.
