Chelsea transfers: ‘Jose Mourinho may sign another striker’
Jamie Carragher says Chelsea may need another striker in the summer
Jamie Carragher reckons Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may sign another striker in the summer transfer window.
The 51-year-old Chelsea boss currently has prolific striker Diego Costa, Blues legend Didier Drogba and France international Loic Remy to choose from in his squad.
Maybe next season they will be looking to bring in another stiker because Drogba will be a year older and maybe to cover for Costa
However, former Liverpool defender Carragher reckons the Blues may need to sign another forward in the summer in anticipation of Drogba’s potential retirement.
“I don’t think there are weaknesses in the first XI but the problem will be if they lose a main player for a length of time,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“No team can cover that – if Ronaldo was missing for Real Madrid they couldn’t, and it would be the same with Chelsea if Diego Costa was out for any length of time, even though they have Drogba and Remy.
“It’s ok missing the odd game but if anyone is out for any length of time like Matic, Fabregas, Costa or Hazard – a player from the spine of the team – it would affect Chelsea. It has an impact on any team if your best players are out, you need that luck.
“I don’t think they will make any signings in January, though, because I don’t think they are particularly short anywhere. Maybe next season they will be looking to bring in another stiker because Drogba will be a year older and maybe to cover for Costa, but I don’t think they are short.”
