5 strikers who could replace Morata at Chelsea
"Alvaro Morata, he comes from sunny Spain, he is better than Harry Kane." This the chant that Chelsea fans used to sing when he was scoring goals at the start of the season. But since the end of December, he has found it very hard to score goals.
When Chelsea signed him at the start of the season as a replacement for Diego Costa, it raised many eyebrows and there were fears that it was unwise to do so. Those fears are turning out to be true and Chelsea seem to have made a huge mistake by trusting him.
Such was his woeful form that winter signing Oliver Giroud managed to displace him in the starting line up for Chelsea's crucial games. With all being said, Chelsea are already looking for new forwards and they could very well replace him in the starting line nest season
Here's a look at 5 strikers who could replace Morata at Chelsea in the summer:
#5 Timo Werner
The German burst onto the scene with RB Leipzig last season, scoring 21 goals in 32 appearances. He also scored 2 goals against Bayern Munich last season.
At the age of 22 he has plenty to offer and if Chelsea sign him, Antonio Conte can definitely improve him as a player. Many considered him to be a one season wonder, but he has again proved the critics wrong by scoring 18 goals this season.
His style of play is similar to Leicester City's Jamie Vardy - who uses his energy to constantly put defenders under pressure. He is also good at making runs behind the defenders. The Germen is also capable of creating a chance for himself with his link-up play. Overall he is a very talented player and will be a good singing for Chelsea.
The Blues are likely to face competition from Liverpool and Manchester United for the forward, if they decide to go for him.
