“The first thing we had to do in January!” – Former Blue questions transfer business

Of course, Chelsea made some absolutely fantastic signings in the January transfer window and spent a lot of money on bring players in for positions they needed.

And perhaps it is simply just a case of not being able to do it all at once, but there is one position that has many people questioning why Chelsea didn’t sign in right now, and that is a new striker.

It’s easy to speak on this right now because Chelsea cannot buy a goal. But it’s also pretty clear that they are lacking a true goalscoring number nine in the squad, and I personally don’t think that can even be debated.

Former Chelsea player turned pundit Frank Leboeuf has penned his latest Chelsea column for Si & Dan Talk Chelsea this week, and this is one of the many things he has highlighted as an issue and spoken about.

Leboeuf believes Chelsea should have signed a striker in January!

He said: “We lack and need a goalscorer, a striker. We need to score goals, because if you don’t keep a clean sheet right now you lose. 1-0 against Dortmund, 1-0 against Southampton, because you don’t score goals. And if you score goals first you are in a good position. I don’t understand, the first thing we had to do in January was to get a striker in my opinion.”
