Steve McManaman says Chelsea NEED to make this signing


Former Liverpool man turned Football pundit Steve McManaman believes Chelsea still need to add for depth in their attacking options.

Diego Costa is set to leave due to Conte not including him in part of his plans for the upcoming season, this has left a gap in attack that the Italian still needs to fill.

The Blues have added Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata to the squad, however, there’s still that empty hole left in the team.

Steve McManaman believes Conte needs to find a quality forward to bring in that extra added fire power the Blues clearly are lacking right now.

Speaking to BT Sport about what signings Chelsea need to make before the close of the summer transfer window, former Liverpool midfielder McManaman said:

“I still think they need a centre-forward.

“Diego Costa is going to leave, and I don’t think Morata or Batshuayi are good enough or strong enough for the Premier League and the Champions League.

“Everything was brilliant last year but it was always about the league. They need to strengthen and they need to strengthen quickly.”
