Sarri hints at the need for Chelsea to sign attackers in January

Sarri hints at the need for Chelsea to sign attackers in January

His side failed to score for the third time in their last five Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, raising more questions about Chelsea's need for a top-class striker in the January transfer window.

It was no surprise Morata wasted a golden opportunity to open the scoring when he met Cesar Azpilicueta's long pass with a tame header straight at 22-year-old Angus Gunn - the son of ex-Norwich goalkeeper Bryan Gunn.

With Olivier Giroud out injured, Alvaro Morata is the only healthy striker on Chelsea's roster.

"The club knows my opinion".

But the Italian, who has deployed Eden Hazard as a centre-forward in some recent matches, added that he has made his feelings known to the club's hierarchy.

"We have to try to solve the problem of the last 15, 20 metres".

Chelsea confirmed on Wednesday that they had reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund over a €64million transfer for the United States worldwide.

"I am not in charge of the market so I have to tend to my matches and play every three days". I think we need something different for characteristics. "The club asked my opinion about him one month ago and my opinion was positive and I knew the deal was done but I didn't know anything".

Sarri told the press after last nights game.

New signing Christian Pulisic won't join the club until next season, loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the remainder of the current campaign.

The United States global will remain at the Signa Iguna Park until the end of the season before making a return back to the west London club.
