Chelsea boss focuses on signing new strikers this summer

Chelsea, Six Sports

Chelsea manager Tuchel had hinted that his top priority this season would be buying new strikers from the summer transfer window. Chelsea could hold on to their third place in the Premier League if something spectacular does not happen for Spurs. They need to win with a very high margin against Norwich in their last match.

The Blues could have easily confirmed their third place if not they have drawn with Leicester in their last match. Chelsea faltered many times against the Foxes to put the ball in the net.

Moreover, scarily only Mason Mount has been able to hit double figures in Premier League goals this season.Romelu Lukaku who made a comeback to the club for an eye-popping transfer fee, could not make a mark. While other forwards like Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, and the likes have also not been able to make a substantial impact.

What Tuchel has to say about Chelsea’s forward players?

Tuchel told reporters,” If we stick to the group then we will try to solve it with these players.” “Is it necessary to bring more offensive players around the box to create more distractions, to create more space for each other?”

We will ask that question. Can we do better in the structure? Can we push the players more? Did we rotate too much? Let’s see. There are a lot of options.”

The numbers we produce from our offensive players don’t allow us to over-perform and we need over-performance if we want to be nearer to the top two teams. I am not pointing fingers, I am not blaming anybody, but we need over-performance from everybody. It’s not over-performance if we have only single figures in scoring and assisting.”

However, Chelsea’s tally of 74 goals is still the third-highest. Manchester City leads the list with 96, followed by Liverpool with 91. Chelsea can only start shopping after the sanctions have been lifted. Moreover, the takeover from Roman Abramovic also needs to be completed. Still, Ousmane Dembele is heavily been linked to the London club. Although, Xavi is hopeful that he would soon sign a new deal. On the other hand, Robert Lewandoski is also doing the rounds at Stamford Bridge.
