Ex-Blues star expecting striker to sign for Chelsea after Blues open talks with 170-goal superstar
Shaun Wright-Phillips believes Chelsea will need to bring in a top striker this summer, amid talk that the Blues have opened talks with Erling Haaland
Chelsea have just got back inside that top four and won the Champions League title, But Tuchel knows that he needs to keep adding to the squad over the course of the window as Manchester City will be stronger next season.
That has led to a whole load of rumours that Tuchel wants to add another striker and midfielder to the squad, with a number of world class players linked, with the latest reports claiming that Chelsea have opened talks with Erling Haaland about a new deal.
And amid all the speculation about a striker coming to the Bridge, Wright-Phillips believes Chelsea will need to bring in a top striker this summer: ‘All the signs are there that they’re definitely looking for a striker,’ former Chelsea and England winger Wright-Phillips told SBK Sportsbook .
‘They may buy a defender or two, but other than that there’s not much more you can do with that brilliant Chelsea team.
‘It’s actually growing in depth and quality, so it’s a very strong squad and there is money to spend as there always is.
‘They were great at scrappy 1-0 wins – but if you’ve got Jorginho as your top goal scorer on seven goals and they’re all penalties, I see that as the problem for any team challenging for the Premier League title against the attacking might of Manchester City.’
Chelsea fans are getting excited about the possible arrivals that could arrive at the club in the coming windows, but if they do get their top transfer target, they will be a real force next season
