The Blues might be looking to bring back their former striker, Diego Costa as following recent suggestions by Peter Crouch.
Chelsea’s striking issues looks no where near been resolved and the manager seems comfortable with their current state, provided that his false 9, Eden Hazard can score one or two goals that would assure their win in a match.
With a striker that is finding it difficult to surface in the English football, Chelsea opted for Arsenal’s striker, Oliver Giroud who was finally brought to Stamford Bridge but a recent sent him off the pitch and he is meant to spend a whole lot of time out there.
Having gone through all these, Chelsea returned to the market but they are slammed with double-packed disappointment as their two options believed to be the solutions to their problems won’t be joining them.
First is Icardi and then Higuain; Icardi is loved so much by the Chelsea supporters and would be a dream come true for the fans if he gets to sign for Chelsea but he is actually demanding for a contract renewal form at Inter Milan and the club are ready to give one to him.
Higuain’s case is a bit more bitter than Icardi’s cause Higuain has actually agreed on a move that will have him been swapped with Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, but Juventus are delaying things.
Stoke City striker has recently dropped an important hint that see Chelsea out of their current problem.
The striker recently told reporters that Chelsea lost a fortune in Costa and they should better head to Spain and bring him back if they are sure they really want to finish among the top four.
“I have concerns about whether they will mount a proper title challenge next season”- Crouch said
“Chelsea have scored the fewest goals of the top six sides. A return of 38 from 21 matches isn’t enough to win you a title, no matter how good your defense is.”
“The one thing you need is someone to score you 30 goals and they do not have a player like Harry Kane, Mo Salah or Sergio Aguero.”
“Not so long ago, they did. Diego Costa would absolutely transform Chelsea’s fortunes and, if it was down to me, I’d break the bank to re-sign him.”
“You can talk about Gonzalo Higuain or Karim Benzema, but I think Costa would be the one to take Chelsea where they want to be.”
The English man also spoke on Morata’s case saying;
“What they need more than anything is the focal point that Drogba, for example, provided. I like Olivier Giroud, and Alvaro Morata is a forward with great technical gifts, but it just does not seem to be happening for him in England. I’m not sure it is going to, either.
“Morata has had some good moments, but not the kind you would expect from someone who arrived for such a big price and it was revealing to hear Zola – who is now Sarri’s assistant – admit that the Spaniard is suffering a crisis of confidence.
“There is nothing a striker can experience that is worse – trust me, I know – but he has to keep working.”
Should Chelsea bring back Costa?
