Chelsea missed out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United and the Blues are still in the market for a new striker ahead of the new season.

The Blues have been linked with quality forwards and Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but for Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly, only Aubameyang has what it takes to replace the Spain international.

“Lukaku was the top target for him. He identified that he’s strong, he can hold the ball and he can make the difference,” Desailly told the Daily Express.

“He moves really well, if they play three up front with Eden Hazard on the left he can move really well, he’s very flexible.

“But Morata, does he fit really? Does he hold the ball, does he have the speed of projection he is asking for? So it is a blow for him really.

“For me, Aubameyang will be the best player to adapt for the Conte system.

“Or, maybe let’s sit down with Diego Costa and bring him back in the system.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
