Chelsea eyeing a striker

The Blues’ main issue in 2020/21 was their lack of goals, with Jorginho having finished the Premier League campaign as their top scorer with just seven strikes, all from the penalty spot.

The capital outfit, in turn, have been attempting to address the issue, amid assurances that signing a striker is the overriding priority at Stamford Bridge this summer.

Two of the main names to have been linked thus far have been Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, and Romelu Lukaku.
