According to former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair, Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic may struggle to get into the Chelsea starting XI if he completes a move to Chelsea this summer.
Chelsea are on the hunt for attacking reinforcements to support Tammy Abraham and the Blues have been linked with a move for Jovic.
The Serbian has scored just two goals for Real Madrid this season.
Speaking to GentingBet, Sinclair said: “Luka Jovic is a very good player but when you look at centre-forwards, he’s pretty similar to Tammy Abraham in the way that he leads the line.
“Taking into consideration that he’s struggled to get into the Real Madrid team, if he can’t get into the Real Madrid team, will he be able to get into the Chelsea team and do well?
“I’d be quite reserved when it comes to Chelsea signing Jovic. Just because you’re leaving a club of the size of Real Madrid, it doesn’t automatically mean that you’re going to come to a club like Chelsea, settle in and score goals in the Premier League because it is a different ask for players that have come from abroad.”
“Tammy Abraham has been excellent, but he has really had to carry the baton on his own all season,” Sinclair added.
“Only now has Giroud come to fruition and led the line quite well but if Chelsea want to get into a situation where they are challenging Liverpool and Man City, then they need to add a world class centre forward.
“The club have been rumoured with centre forwards across the world; the likes of Jovic and Timo Werner, but for me, I’d like to see Chelsea bring in a proven Premier League striker – which is the hardest thing to do.
“It needs to be an experienced player, someone who is going to be No 1 when Tammy Abraham develops, because as a young striker around the country, there isn’t really any that are better than Tammy Abraham.”
