Chelsea urged to sign Fulham star to solve one key issue

Former Chelsea star Tony Cascarino has urged Chelsea to sign Fulham striker after their latest disappointing performance on Friday night.

Chelsea have strengthened heavily over the last six months, reinforcing nearly every position on the pitch. Joao Felix was brought in to help out in attack, but he’s not your natural number nine, and their current crop aren’t performing.

Kai Havertz has regularly started in a centre-forward role for Chelsea and he was disappointing against Fulham on Friday night. That’s a view shared by former Chelsea striker Cascarino, and he’s urged the London club to raid their local rivals for Mitrovic.

“I’m sure we’ll talk about Havertz in this conversation because Havertz doesn’t lead the line. All the things I got taught as a centre forward, and all the centre forwards I know, he doesn’t do a number of things very well. And Graham Potter doesn’t recognise that,” said Cascarino, on talkSPORT.

Mitrovic in action for Fulham

Havertz isn’t a natural striker, so that’s a fair statement from Cascarino, but he’s not really suited to this Chelsea system at all. Havertz regularly played as an attacking midfielder for Bayer Leverkusen, but Chelsea usually play with slightly deeper midfielders.

“Even the way he [Mitrovic] plays, he holds up the ball. Just exactly what Chelsea need at the moment up front. Someone to bring that ball in, hold it up and lay it off, get in the box, get on crosses,” added Cascarino.

Mitrovic would undoubtedly strengthen Chelsea due to his goalscoring record and ability to lead the line, but Todd Boehly has opted to sign younger, up-and-coming players in his recruitment.
