Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that the Blues are in the market for a new striker.

An injury to Christopher Nkunku in pre-season and Armando Broja still out injured means the Blues must sign a striker before the transfer window closes.

“It is a difficult situation because we had two strikers in Nkunku and Broja but they are injured,” Pochettino told talkSPORT.

“It is not easy in this moment to find the right profile. We are in the process, working to see if we can add some players in this area.

“But it is a job that is not easy for the club. For sure, they are working really hard to add some players. If it is not possible, we need to wait until Nkunku and Broja will be ready and we have the help of Mason [Burstow].

“I don’t think the problem is that we need another striker. The chances that we created, we need to be more clinical. It is not only the strikers that need to be clinical in front of goal.”
