One of the many issues Chelsea are currently facing is the lack of potency in the final third. This has made it a bit difficult for the Blues to score as many goals as possible to finish off games when required.
The west London club have registered the least number of goals, among the top 10 teams on the Premier League log this season (17).
Chelsea also don’t have any players amongst the top 10 goal scorers in the league so far this season. The highest scorers at the club so far are Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling, who both have three goals.
Ahead of the January transfer window, head coach Graham Potter could make do with a couple of reinforcements within his team, especially in attack. As such, this article will look at three forwards the Blues could sign.
#3 Ivan Toney
He has already hit double goal-digits this season after 15 games. Toney’s tally of 10 league goals for Brentford is better than any player at Chelsea currently.
The English striker is not just a goal poacher but possesses excellent link-up ability, which is key for modern day centre-forwards. He has already provided three assists in all competitions and registered six in the 2021-22 season.
The in-form striker would have been very disappointed not to be selected for the England team for the upcoming World Cup. Only two players have scored more Premier League goals than Toney this season, of which they are Erling Haaland (18) and Harry Kane (12).
#2 Leandro Trossard
One player who is currently enjoying a brilliant 2022-23 Premier League campaign is Belgium international Leandro Trossard.
The 27-year-old forward has scored an impressive total of seven league goals, while also providing two assists for Brighton & Hove Albion. His form has helped the Seagulls climb to seventh in the league table.
Trossard could be a great addition for Chelsea as he offers a lot of versatility in attack. He can operate as a left-midfielder, left-winger, attacking-midfielder and even as a false-nine.
His relationship with Blues head coach Potter could be a bonus for the west London club as they both worked together at Brighton.
#1 Christopher Nkunku
The France international is currently one of the most in-form players in 2022, judging by his stellar performances for RB Leipzig.
Christopher Nkunku has already netted 17 goals and provided three assists in all competitions this season heading into the 2022 FIFA World Cup break.
The 24-year-old is currently fourth among players with the most goals and assists in 2022. He has registered a total of 36 goals and 13 assists in 57 appearances this year.
Nkunku is reportedly the subject of a possible January transfer to Stamford Bridge. The Blues already have an agreement in principle with RB Leipzig for his signature, as seen in The Sun.
