Chelsea’s lack of goals
Chelsea’s 2020/21 under Thomas Tuchel will no doubt go down as one of the greatest starts a manager can have in a job.
In just half a season Tuchel was able to guide Chelsea back into 4th place in the Premier League and secure the club’s second Champions League title by toppling PL champions Manchester City in the final.
Chelsea, though, are still not the finished article, with their real lack of a top goal-scorer no doubt a concern.
Despite hardly featuring in all competitions under Thomas Tuchel, Tammy Abraham remained Chelsea’s top scorer in all competitions in 2020/21, netting 12 goals.
And though Chelsea fans may want to see Abraham back in the side, Tuchel is clearly not a big fan, with it reported that the Blues will listen to offers for the Englishman this summer.
In the Premier League last season meanwhile, Jorginho finished the campaign as the Londoners’ top-scorer with just seven goals – all of which were penalties.
Chelsea eyeing Haaland
And, on Monday, it appears that Chelsea are indeed looking at at least one striker at present.
That man, if reports prove true, is Borussia Dortmund and Norway star, Erling Haaland.
BVB director Michael Zorc would state last month that Haaland will stay with them next season:
“We are still planning with him. He will play for us next season.”
However, the report which emerged on Monday from Simon Phillips claims that Chelsea’s talks to sign Haaland are advancing, despite reports Dortmund will not sell him this summer.
Phillips, however, adds that he does not expect anything to happen soon.
