Chelsea are yet to make any signing for the first team in the January transfer window despite the inconsistent performance of the team.
With several days left to the close of the January transfer window, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed the Blues are in the market for a striker.
“The impetus to bring in a striker or players potentially that can get on the end of these chances we’re creating is there, and we have to be really honest about that,” Lampard said.
“Recent games have shown that if we are struggling to create that’s one problem, but when you’re creating 20 chances a game and not scoring enough goals that can be crucial.
“So I don’t think it absolutely changes it but Tammy [Abraham] of course has been our main source of goals, so yes, it’s very relevant.
“I think there’s choice but it’s not the ideal window.
“I think history has proven that, albeit there have been some good acquisitions for teams that have made a difference in the short term and long term.
“So I think it’s about trying to get the choice right of the player that we can bring in of what’s available. And I think there is.
“The club know my thoughts on it, I’m saying the same thing pretty much every press conference and the games are showing that.
“So we’ll have to see by the time the window shuts.”
