Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reported to have been permitted to find new players for the striking role at the Stamford Bridge.
Both Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata have failed to live up to expectations with their poor form this season, a development that is already becoming a concern to the club’s authorities.
The Blues have been warned to have more additions at the club so as to take off the burden of goal scoring away from Belgium international Eden Hazard.
The star player has been the motivator and leader for the Sarri team with his fine performance and goals having scored more than any Chelsea player this season.
However, the Italian boss according to The Sun has identified Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi or AC Milan’s Patrick Cutrone as good fits for the club.
Icardi remains a top priority on the list but Chelsea will have to cough out the sum of £90 million for the striker who has scored five times his season for his side.
However, Cutrone who is also being monitored by Tottenham will be an immediate option should a deal for Icardi fails to happen.
The faith in Morata seems to be diminishing having failed to pay back the £65 million spent on him from Real Madrid to the Stamford Bridge in 2017.
