Dennis Wise has urged Chelsea FC to do what they can to bring in a new striker in the January transfer window.

The west London side have been linked with a host of players over the last few weeks as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his side at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC have secured the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton and continue to be linked with a number of top stars as the mid-season transfer window draws to a close.

Conte’s men were beaten by Arsenal in the semi-finals of the League Cup on Wednesday night as they missed out on their chance to reach the Wembley final.

Much has been made of Chelsea FC’s lack of attacking options up front this season following summer signing Alvaro Morata’s recent struggles in front of goal.

And former Chelsea FC star Wise believes that it is imperative that the Blues try to bring in a new forward this month as they look to strengthen their options.

Asked how important it is Chelsea FC sign a new striker this month, Wise told Sky Sports: “Yes, I think it’s important.

“[Michy] Batshuayi has not given enough to the team and Morata is going through a spell that’s not great for his confidence.

“To get someone else in is important to push Morata and give them another option going forward.”

Chelsea FC now switch their attentions back towards FA Cup affairs and their fourth-round clash with Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
