Chelsea striker Diego Costa is set to leave the club following the recent argument with manager Antonio Conte.
Former Blues’ winger Paul Canoville ‘it is a worrying situation because Chelsea need a striker in place’.
Canoville, interviewed by SkySports, claimed: “Everyone knows that in the Premier League you need a standout striker. You need someone who’s capable of holding the ball up and can finish”.
“Chelsea have been linked to [Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and Morata but foreign teams are asking English clubs for a lot of money for these players and there is no certainty that they can do it in the Premier League”.
“Morata has also not been getting regular games at Real so he’s bound to be a little rusty. Chelsea need a player that is suited to the system and can build up his fitness during pre-season and can fit in right away.”
