After the defeat inflicted at Stamford Bridge, by Leicester City, on Saturday, it is as blatant as blatant can be that Chelsea need to purchase a striker.
There’s no denying that Alvaro Morata And Olivier Giroud have their good days, but the fact that neither are capable of delivering 20+ goals in a season is seriously affecting Chelsea’s ambitions of a top-four finish.
With the January transfer window set to open shortly, we’re hoping that Chelsea address the situation, otherwise we could face a second season without Champions League football.
Lurking in the pages of the Express, is an interesting article in which our former captain, Dennis Wise, suggests that Chelsea, in January, will be trying to bring one of two strikers to Stamford Bridge.
The names in the frame are interesting ones – Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) and Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich).
Now cases could be made for either and I’d imagine that you all have your views on which one you’d prefer.
Please feel free to drop those views in the comment facility beneath this article.
As for me, I’d opt for Jamie Vardy with his exceptional pace being the perfect compliment for the fast counter-attacking football that undoes so many teams.
