Andy Cole has claimed he expects Chelsea to bring a new striker to the club this summer and move Timo Werner to the left on a permanent basis.
Thomas Tuchel is a man that knows he will need to improve in key areas of the pitch in the transfer window in order to wrestle that Premier League title from Manchester City next season, and adding a striker is high up on things to do.
There has been alot of speculation about what players Tuchel will look to sign in the window, and he is expected to have a big transfer kitty to play with, and Cole has claimed he expects the club to bring a new striker to the club this summer and move Werner to the left on a permanent basis
He was quoted on the Metro: ‘Werner works his socks off, he’s relentless. He never gives up, he would chase a piece of paper. ‘But I do genuinely believe that if Chelsea are going to win the Premier League next season, he [Tuchel] will buy a centre forward
‘He might play Werner on the left, he looks stronger there. He’s creative as well but as a centre forward you’ve got to be ruthless.
‘Where are Chelsea trying to get to? Should they buy a proven goalscorer now who is going to guarantee them 20 or 25 goals and win them the Premier League next season?
‘When you’re trying to win major honours you have to have someone who is scoring 20 or 25 goals a season.’
This squad are one of the best in the Premier League right now, so if Tuchel can get that world class striker that will add 30-40 goals a season to the attack, they will be the team to watch next season.
