Michael Owen names the player Chelsea must replace

Chelsea urged to sign a world-class striker.

The Blues spent over £225m in the summer transfer window and signed players like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and a few others.

Timo Werner hasn’t lived up to the expectations and former Liverpool legend believes Chelsea needs a striker of the highest calibre to win the Premier League.

‘I’ve never felt comfortable with Chelsea’s main centre forwards since Drogba probably,’ Owen told Premier League Productions.

‘I only say that when I’m talking: ‘Are Chelsea going to win the league? Are they real contenders?’

‘Of course they’re brilliant players- Giroud’s won the World Cup for godness sake and is a brilliant player. But to win the Premier League you need one of the best strikers in the world and I don’t think Abraham or Giroud are in the top-10 strikers in the world.

‘It’s a department that a lot of managers have tried…even Werner they keep trying to buy bigger, better strikers. I just don’t think they’ve got it right since and they’ve spent fortunes.

‘You mentioned Diego Costa, they bought Fernando Torres at the top of his game, Morata they spent big money on. They know there’s a problem.

‘They get by – it’s not glaringly obvious but if they want to win the league [then they must sign a top centre forward].’
