With Diego Costa to leave Chelsea this summer after being told by Antonio Conte he isn’t part of his plans for next season, Chelsea have been linked with a number of quality forwards in the transfer market.
Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is one of the names on Chelsea’s transfer list but former Liverpool and Tottenham skipper Jamie Redknapp has questioned the move for Morata.
Writing in his Sky Sports column, Redknapp revealed that the 24-year-old isn’t the man to replace Costa at Stamford Bridge.
“I do worry about Chelsea now though because Costa was so good,” Redknapp said.
“These players are not easy to find. You could sign Alvaro Morata who is extremely talented but he doesn’t get regular games at Real.
“It is really difficult to find the players you want, who can make the difference Diego Costa did, especially with the style Chelsea play.
“It worked so well last season so to not see him in a Chelsea shirt will be hard for the players and certainly the fans because he’s been extremely successful for them.”
