Chelsea progressed into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday courtesy of a 1-0 win over high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion. 

The Blues have struggled in the Premier League so far this season, winning just one of their six league matches to leave them 14th in the table with just five points.

For manager Mauricio Pochettino, his side’s biggest problem has been their lack of conviction in attack.

Only Burnley an Luton Town have scored fewer than Chelsea’s five goals so far this season, and both the Clarets and the Hatters have played only five games, rather than six.

With that in mind, it appears that the Argentine is keen to bolster his attack at the next opportunity.

As per Football Insider, Chelsea will prioritise signing a new striker when the transfer window reopens in January.

The West London club have spent around £1 billion since owner Todd Boehly took charge of the club last summer, but several new attackers have failed to impress in front of goal.

Last season Chelsea scored just 38 goals in as many games as they slumped to a 12th-placed finish in the table, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling, who were both signed last summer, struggling to find the net.

This season has been a similar story so far, with new arrival Nicolas Jackson having scored just once in six Premier League appearances.

The former Villarreal man has also been booked five times, meaning that he will miss Chelsea’s trip to rivals Fulham on Monday evening.

Previously the Blues have been linked with several high-profile attackers from across Europe, including Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic and Napoli star Victor Osimhen.
