There’s a huge season on the horizon for Antonio Conte’s Chelsea and they’re going to have to start getting busy in the transfer window as some of their rivals start to bring in some of the biggest players in the world.
Manchester United beat the Blues to the signing of Romelu Lukaku earlier this weekend and the pressure is now building on Antonio Conte to start adding good enough players to his team for the upcoming campaign.
And moving forward, one of the biggest problems Chelsea have in their current ranks is the lack of striking power, especially considering the sitiation currently surrounding Diego Costa at the Bridge.
They’ve missed out on one big striking target over the past few days but we think there’s one man they simply must move to bring in over the coming weeks and that’s Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
The Spanish forward has been struggling for game-time at the Bernabeu for some-time now and he’s been hotly tipped with a move away from the club over the summer months and after Chelsea’s inability to sign Lukaku, we think he’s a player they should now be targeting.
Lukaku is a proven Premier League striker, who scores goals when the pressure really isn’t on that much at all but in Morata you’ve got a player that has bagged goals at the highest level in the world. He’s got Champions League experience, even more so than Lukaku and if you’re looking at more of a “complete player”, then the Spaniard surely must tick the box.
He’s got that little bit more pace, guile, movement and versatility, whereas Lukaku is good at the things he does best- holding up the ball and scoring goals with his back to goal.
But Chelsea really shouldn’t be too downbeat. At 24-years-old, Morata hasn’t even come into the best spell of his career yet. Bringing him in now might be an extremely good idea indeed.
