French football legend and former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf, has told Chelsea they need to sign at least one experienced midfielder and a striker to give more balance to the squad.

The Blues are being linked with Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, who scored more than 30 goals last season, and Leboeuf believes he’d be a good signing.

Leboeuf told “Chelsea need a striker and an experienced midfielder. I said last season that Mitrovic would be good – he’s not world-class, but he’s a leader and a fighter. Victor Osimhen is having problems at Napoli, and maybe Chelsea can go for him in January.

“There’s also Nantes’ Mostafa Mohamed – I think he could do a good job.

“Chelsea also need help in midfield, someone like Toni Kross or Luka Modric. They may be older and not play as many games, but they could definitely serve the club well.”
