Chelsea “want one other striker” this summer season with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud having did not fill the boots of Diego Costa, in keeping with Frank Sinclair.
The Blues secured two Premier League titles with Costa main the road, with the Spaniard scoring 20 occasions in every of these campaigns.
Antonio Conte was, nevertheless, to take the choice to maneuver in a unique course throughout the summer season of 2017, with Costa frozen out and worldwide team-mate Morata drafted in.
The previous Actual Madrid ahead endured a troublesome debut season in England and finally slipped behind January addition Giroud within the attacking pecking order.
The Frenchman impressed after arriving from Arsenal, however Sinclair believes additional additions are required if Chelsea are to rediscover their spark and strike worry into Premier League opponents.

Whereas anticipating Chelsea to dip into the summer season market, Sinclair fears they could discover the going robust.
Failure to safe a top-four end in 2017-18 has left the membership with out elite stage European competitors, which can result in them lacking out on prime targets demanding greater than the Blues can supply.
