Chelsea will look for a new striker in the summer


Chelsea will look for a new striker in the summer transfer window and the Blues manager Graham Potter wants fresh legs for next season.

As per reports, Chelsea is in search of a new striker next season as they lack firepower in the frontline. Chelsea’s hierarchy will again be heavily spent in the summer and will look out for a prolific goalscorer.

Of course, Chelsea still have Romelu Lukaku and but the Belgian Striker might leave Stanford Bridge in the summer. The striker already spent two loan spells at Inter Milan. Inter CEO confirmed that Lukaku will be back at Chelsea next season and Inter will not be speaking about a contract extension or a permanent buy.

Thomas Tuchel shares his views about the situation:-

“The loan was for one season so on June 30 regardless of how well he plays, he’ll go back to Chelsea.

“This has been an unprecedented season. I’m referring of course to the (winter) World Cup. The problems we’ve experienced have been experienced by other clubs too and the players who played at the World Cup.

“Lukaku is a case in point. (Marcelo) Brozović isn’t the Brozović we know. Lukaku hasn’t found the fitness he needs to play his best football. He’s still not at his best or the player we got to see in years gone by.”

However, Potter has never worked with Lukaku and he might opt for a new frontman next season. Chelsea might shortlist some names and Victor Osimhen is under their radar.
