Tammy Abraham has firmly established himself as the Chelsea first-choice striker this season with some dazzling displays. The youngster has proven that he is capable of developing into a world-class talent and also drawn comparisons to the likes of Didier Drogba and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.
The Blues will however likely need to bring in at least one big-name striker next summer. The likely scenario is that Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud will end up leaving the West London club next summer once the transfer ban is over. Batshuayi never really managed to establish himself at Stamford Bridge while Giroud is past his prime and should be allowed to move to another club where he can play more regular football during the final few years of his career.
The Blues should ideally aim to bring in a striker who can provide stiff competition to Abraham and who can match him in terms of goals scored. The following are two players whom they should consider.
1. Harry Kane
To some this may seem far-fetched as Kane is a boyhood product of Spurs. However, at 26-years-old, the Englishman is soon approaching the peak of his career. He has also yet to win a major trophy in his career which is an injustice considering that he is one of the best forwards in the World. Spurs currently look to be a shadow of the team that they were during previous seasons. If they carry on at this rate, the chances are there that Kane may consider a new challenge in order to boost his chances of winning major silverware. He would represent a major coup for the Blues.
2. Timo Werner
At just 23-years-old, Werner is an exciting talent and still has a bright future ahead of him. He is a world-class player and is likely to one day leave Leipzig to join one of the elite clubs in World football. The German would be a brilliant addition to the Blues squad.
