  • Morata Lineup

Chelsea have struggled in the striking department during the ongoing campaign with the front duo of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud managing just a combined six goals in the top-flight.

Mirror Football are reporting that Chelsea are interested in Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in the January transfer window.

AC Milan's Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with Chelsea, but Maurizio Sarri says he does not need a striker and wants a winger instead.

At present, Higuain is on a two-year loan deal with AC Milan and the Blues are apparently reluctant to discuss terms with two separate clubs in order to lure the marksman to the Premier League.

"There's still, one or two areas where he can improve, I think he's not quite as direct as some more prolific wide players he's not quite as unsafe as yet, doesn't quite have the consistency or presence and threat you'd like".


"We have Morata, and Hazard can play very well in this position as we have seen in the last two, three matches, so I think that in the moment I don't need another striker".

"We have to try to solve the problem of the last 15, 20 metres". I have to try to improve my players in the offensive phase.

But according to Goal, the Blues will now not be signing Higuain in January despite recent reports suggesting otherwise.

"I know very well Gonzalo, he is a simple and passionate guy who lives every situation with great enthusiasm".

Shearer added: "Is Sarri-ball when they ask a midfielder to get on the ball and pass it around".
