Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said Maurizio Sarri will need to sign another striker to for Chelsea in the coming transfer windows.

Despite our incredible start to the new Premier League season, in which we have taken 28 points from the first 12 league fixtures to sit third in the Premier League, there is still media claims that we need a goals-scorer to come in and fire us to success.

Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have put in some decent performances this season, but they will not get us that 30-40 goals a season that we need to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League crown

And former Chelsea hero Hasselbaink says we need to buy another striker to close the gap on defending champions City.

‘I think every club that is going to challenge for the Premier League needs three strikers,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘For me they [Chelsea] still have a gap to close on Man City, but they are improving and if they can keep on improving they can hopefully catch them. ‘[Sarri] has changed the way they play totally.

‘They now play more in the defensive third of the opposition. They have the ball 60 or 70 per cent of the time – that was totally different last year.

‘You see smiles on the players’ faces again and they’re playing attractive, attacking football.’

Should we go big in the January transfer window to bring a world class striker to the club?

We have so far been brilliant this season and much of the plaudits should go to Sarri for how he has transformed a side that finished so far off the Premier League title last season, as we are real contenders for that Premier League title.

But Morata and Giroud are not good enough and we should try and acquire the services of Harry Kane, Mauro Icardi or Gonzalo Higuain in the January window as anyone of those three will bring goals to the squad, and a lot more than what Morata and Giroud have offered us so far,

But should we stick with the duo or bring in the world class player we need?
