Chelsea sent Erling Haaland transfer message after Arsenal defeat

Published

on

Jamie Redknapp has urged Chelsea to sign a “striker that can guarantee goals” after their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday, naming Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland as the ideal addition.

Arsenal capitalised on an error from Jorginho to score the only goal of the game, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang teeing up Emile Smith Rowe.

Chelsea had a total of 19 shots as they attempted to get back in the game, but they could not find the back of the net.

Speaking after the match, Redknapp told Sky Sports that he felt the Chelsea are missing a striker who can “make that difference”.

He said: “They’ve got so many quality players but I still think [Chelsea need a new striker].

“[Timo] Werner’s done okay, he’s had assists and a few goals, [but] you just think with this team, if they were to get someone like a Haaland or a striker that can guarantee goals, what they could become.

“This has been their problem at times, scoring enough goals.

“They’ve got so much threat going forward, but [they are missing] that striker to make that difference at times.”

Former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole, however, insists he is “happy with Werner” leading the line for the Blues next season.

“I always go back to the pre-season,” he said.

I really don’t think the team had a great pre-season in terms of covid, the stop-start, players catching covid so they’ve missed a big chunk of training.

“I think next season [it] will be great to see the team have a good pre-season, understand the style and philosophy of the manager and then hopefully really click and gel.

“This season, there’s been moments in games where they’ve been brilliant, they’ve been great to watch.

“So hopefully they can solidify that next season and come again stronger.

“Of course, you talk about Haaland, what quality he has but I’m happy with Werner thank you.”

Cole has previously called Werner “underrated”, saying earlier this month: “I really think he’s underrated. Yes he’s missed some big chances and opportunities.

“As a coach, as a manager, you always look to say ‘is he in the right spots, is he in the right positions to strike and convert them?’

“But I think the way [Thomas] Tuchel sets up and the way he wants them to play through the lines, combined with the diagonal passes, he’s pivotal in that role, running into the space and running into areas where Mason [Mount] can pick the ball up.”

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
