Rio Ferdinand has told Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel that he needs to sign an elite No9.
The Blues spent some massive amounts of money in last summer’s transfer window improving that attack of theres, with Timo Werner the signing that was supposed to be the leading striker.
However, the German has not made the impact that many had hoped when he signed, as Werner has only managed to score five Premier League goals in 28-appearances, a contract from last season when he netted an impressive 28 in the Gundesliga.
And Ferdinand has told Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel that he needs to sign an elite No9, but stopped short of name-dropping Haaland, who is also a target for his old club, Manchester United.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAD:
Ferdinand said ON THE SUN: “I think they’ll have to add still, they need to add in areas to do that.
“The No9 area maybe? Someone who is going to be potent and score a lot of goals.
“They’ve come in here not scoring as many goals as in the previous regime.
“I think that will have to change in time but they’ve only conceded two goals.
“It’s a big difference but they do need to maybe invest. It’s a fantastic squad.”
WILL TUCHEL GET THE FUNDS?
If Roman Abramovic feels that Tuchel is the man that will lead the club back to that Premier League title, then he will back the German in the transfer window, and if Haaland is the man that the club want, they have the money to get a deal all wrapped up.
But the window is a few months away, lets see how the season plays out first.
