Jose Mourinho is nothing if not a careful cultivator of his own public image.Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba all have the word "striker" near the top of their CV (even if, for Ba, it's nestled just below "syrup connoisseur").But Chelsea, of course, are not just another Premier League club. It should perhaps not be surprising, then, that Chelsea have been linked with a revolving cast of strikers in the past year or so.Let's start with the obvious: Diego Costa is a brilliant player. Part of the brief for any striker at Stamford Bridge these days is mere distraction – giving defenders enough to think about that they forget about Hazard, Oscar and co.Neither Eto'o nor Torres has the same lion-heart spirit, not any more.Now that Mourinho has his man, next year's Premier League title race could be decidedly less competitive than it has been this year. Next season, Chelsea hope to have Diego Costa.
