Chelsea have scored 16 fewer goals than Liverpool and 23 fewer than Manchester City in the Premier League. Our leading goalscorer in the league is Mason Mount, who has 11 goals this season.
Despite spending over £200m on forwards since the summer of 2020, Chelsea’s attack still lacks a world-class finisher. Ex-Blue Tony Cascarino explained what Chelsea can do to correct that
“Chelsea will not win the league until they find a proper finisher. The attacking players they have now are top talents in many ways, but they lack a clinical goalscorer.
“The FA Cup final against Liverpool showed again that Chelsea need too many chances to score — or not score, as was the case on Saturday. Mason Mount is their leading scorer in the league this season, which is not the way it should be.
“I like the boy Lautaro Martínez at Inter, so I would suggest Chelsea offer the Italian club the chance to take Romelu Lukaku back on loan, get rid of Timo Werner, and bring in Martínez. He is the sort of technical, ruthless forward they need.”
The 24-year-old has 21 goals in Serie A this season, with 25 goals across all competitions. Transfermarkt value Martinez at £63m.
