Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea for a club record fee this summer after Chelsea’s top scorer last season, Diego Costa, was told he wasn’t part of Conte’s plans for the new season.
Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Chelsea will need one more striker if the Blues are to compete for all trophies this season.
“He would want to compete for all the trophies and I think if you’re a Chelsea player or a Chelsea fan, or a Chelsea coach, that’s what you do,” Hasselbaink said on Goals on Sunday.
“That is where the club is at at the moment. They need to compete, are they going to be able to?
“I don’t know, they still need reinforcements I think in a few areas.
“I think you can’t replace Costa because Costa is unique.
“They have Morata but I do feel that they need one more.
“I think Morata is going to be a brilliant signing. What I like about Morata is that he’s played for big clubs, he’s played for Juventus, he’s played for Real Madrid.
“So he knows what is expected from him, he knows that there is pressure. His movement is magnificent, he will score goals.”
