Guus Hiddink wants new striker at Chelsea

Jamie Vardy or Saido Berahino

Guus Hiddink has told Chelsea officials that he will take the vacant managerial job at Stamford Bridge, but only if they sign a new striker in January.

Hiddink held talks with Chelsea officials in a London hotel yesterday afternoon, and according to reports, he urged them to sign either Jamie Vardy or Saido Berahino.

The Dutchman, who has managed Chelsea before, is still unsure on whether he wants the role or not, as he fears there are deeper problems at Stamford Bridge.

Hiddink won the FA Cup for the Blues back in 2009 and is the favourite to land the interim-role, but as it stands, he’s still undecided.

New Striker Wanted

If Hiddink does agree to take over, it’s believed he will try and land a new striker in January, with the Premier League duo top of his wishlist.

Chelsea have struggled for goals this term, with Diego Costa netting just three, and Hiddink wants to add more firepower to the squad if he does take the reigns.

Vardy is currently the Premier League’s top goalscorer, while Berahino is still struggling at West Brom following the summer’s transfer saga.
