Despite the club’s struggles in defence, the Blues are reportedly in talks to sign another striker.

According to French media outlet Le 10 Sport via Daily Star, Chelsea have opened talks with Lille about the possibility of signing forward Jonathan Ikone.

The 22-year-old forward racked up three goals and six assists in Ligue 1 this season before the coronavirus pandemic brought the French league campaign to a halt at the end of April.

Ikone’s impressive performances earned him his first call-up to the France national side in September 2019 and the attacker has since earned four caps under Didier Deschamps.

The interest from Chelsea for Ikone is reportedly very serious and Serie A side Inter Milan are also interested in the Lille striker.

Ikone’s Lille contract has another three years to run, and the report suggests he may only leave if a significant offer is put forward.

Is Ikone needed at Chelsea?

    No not at all i can see that frank lampard is absolutely confused, and i think the job as chelsea manager is too big for him, he should just admit it and leave for good than to be making expensive mistakes that is causing the club a big misfortune in every game, we had never had a good conformable win with frank lampard as a manager, i mean something has to be done about it and urgent as well.

    If we should be looking for an additional we should be looking at our defence as we all can see we really don’t have any one in defence to be proud of, and that is Chelsea’s biggest problem at the moment

    We do NOT need to sign a new keeper or more strikers. We desperately need DEFENDERS, DEFENDERS, DEFENDERS. Why can’t they see that????

    At this moment we don’t need an attacker, what we need is a formidable defender Koulibali of Napoli… We must go all out to secure his signature!
