Tuchel told the signing he must make in January to help Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been told he needs to sign a No 10 to get the best out of club-record signing Romelu Lukaku.

“I’ve seen number tens at other clubs that have been pivotal, [Thierry] Henry had Bergkamp, he was a fantastic ten,” Tony Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“Now Lukaku had that with [Lautaro] Martinez at Inter Milan now he hasn’t had that at Chelsea, he’s got players that are not quite the finished article.

“Timo Werner is not a good foil in a partnership.

“He’s very hit and miss as a player, incredible work rate, desire to run in behind and never stops chasing.

“But he doesn’t have the quality of a number ten that I think Lukaku needs.”
