Tottenham striker Harry Kane would be a perfect fit for Chelsea, according to former QPR and Blackpool manager Ian Holloway.
Chelsea have scored the least amount of goals (40) among the top six teams this season with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud struggling to impress.
“If they had Harry Kane, he’d be perfect for them because everything sticks and he scores all sorts of goals,” Holloway told Express Sport.
“But they dominate the ball so much so they need someone who can do things with their feet. All the other teams have got more to choose from.
“[Phil] Foden couldn’t get a game for Man City the other night but when you look at who they’ve got you understand why. Chelsea don’t really have that.
“I don’t see their squad as that strong.
“It’s very difficult for the type of genius like [Eden] Hazard to do 38 games in a row and be brilliant every time.
“Sometimes you need something different when he’s not buzzing, you need some ugly goals sometimes.
“All of Chelsea’s goals are beautiful, it can’t be that. You’ve got to scrap some out sometimes.”
Chelsea are close to completing a deal for AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain with the Blues agreeing a six-month loan deal with his parent club Juventus.
Holloway believes Higuain could be a monster for the Blues.
“Gonzalo Higuain could be a monster for Chelsea,” the former QPR and Blackpool boss added.
“I think he’s got total class written all over him and he’s got enough experience to own that shirt.
“That shirt weighs a tonne. The centre forward shirt at Chelsea weighs a tonne.
“You’ve only got to walk round the ground and see the legends there. If I was a centre forward for them I’d be thinking: ‘Good God, I’ve got to be as good as them!’
“It’s a hell of a heavy shirt to wear but I think that’s the key that’s missing and it’ll be frustrating Sarri.”
Meanwhile, Harry Kane will be unavailable for Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semifinal second leg clash with Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.
Kane scored the only goal of the game as Tottenham beat Chelsea 1-0 in the first leg via a controversial penalty awarded by the VAR.
Kane will be out for two months after damaging ligaments in his left ankle in Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday. Son Heung-Min will also be available to face Chelsea as he’s away at the Asian Cup for the next few weeks.
