Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Chelsea lack a natural goalscorer despite our impressive form under Thomas Tuchel.

Merson believes Chelsea must sign a striker that scores goals for fun this summer.

“Watching Chelsea in recent weeks, I personally think they need to buy a striker,” he told Sky Sports.

“They need someone who is going to be in the top four or five goal scorers in the Premier League next season. You need that if you are going to challenge for the Premier League.

“You need a natural goal scorer there who puts that in the back of the net with the minimum of fuss.”

Merson also believes Timo Werner isn’t the player to lead Chelsea’s attack.

“I watch Timo Werner and I just think there’s something missing still. His decision making isn’t great,” added the former Arsenal striker.

“He’s certainly not a lazy player, but he’s just got to take more care in making runs in behind. He runs offside too many times for me.”
