Everton was the team that Chelsea defeated to get their season of Premier League play off to a winning start. However, their performance was not particularly outstanding since they had difficulty creating scoring opportunities and had to rely on a penalty kick to take the game. The lack of an adequate striker to take the initiative and lead the assault was the primary contributor to their difficulties.
In the summer of 2016, Chelsea made the decision to strengthen their attack by acquiring Romelu Lukaku. Despite the club's high hopes, the Player did not live up to their anticipations. As a direct consequence of this, Chelsea decided to loan its Striker to Inter Milan for the next season. Timo Werner was the only player still on the team capable of leading the assault after this development, but Chelsea ultimately made the decision to trade the player to RB Leipzig.
Because of this, Chelsea currently does not have a true striker on their roster. It is possible that Chelsea will have the same difficulties as Manchester City had since they did not have a Striker on their team. Even if Chelsea has a few players that are capable of scoring goals, the Striker position is crucial for the team if they want to be successful and win games. In certain games during the previous season, Manchester City suffered since they did not have a Striker. However, they have addressed this problem by acquiring a top striker (Erling Haaland) for the current season. If Chelsea doesn't find a striker before the end of the current campaign, they might end themselves in the same position as Manchester City next season.
Because the transfer window is nearly closed, Chelsea does not have any more time. However, rumors have circulated that Chelsea is interested in signing great attackers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Aubameyang, but the club has not taken any concrete steps toward acquiring either of these players. Fans of Chelsea Football Club will likely hold out hope at this point that the club will acquire a first-rate striker before the conclusion of the current transfer window.
What are your thoughts?
Will Chelsea make a move for a star striker before the start of the new season?
