Chelsea currently has two senior strikers on their roster: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Armando Broja. Aubameyang, on the other hand, has struggled to find the back of the net since joining the Blues earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Broja suffered a horrific injury in a friendly against Aston Villa on Saturday and will be out for some time:
“It was just an unfortunate action,” Graham Potter said after the game. “He ran into their player and the ground. “ It doesn’t look good right now, but it’s too early to tell. “I’m crossing my fingers, but it’s an awkward one.”
The Athletic reported on Monday that Chelsea is interested in another young striker.
Chelsea are reportedly investigating the possibility of bringing Youssoufa Moukoko to Stamford Bridge. A move to Chelsea is not finalized, but other Premier League clubs believe it is in the works and are keeping a close eye on it.
However, Moukoko’s contract at Dortmund expires at the end of the season, and there is speculation that Chelsea is laying the groundwork for a summer transfer now, but may be able to bring him to west London next month.
Moukoko, then 18 years and three days old, became the youngest player to represent Germany at a World Cup when he came on as a substitute in Germany’s 2-1 loss to Japan in their first group game.
