Owen has urged Chelsea to find a new striker in January. and pointing out that in the summer market. UFABET The team will have to spend money to pull Rice to join the team.
“Chelsea haven’t had a target striker for some time. It’s often said that the No. 9 is the graveyard of the team.” Owen told Premier League Productions.
“It is difficult to fill this position after Didier Drogba many years ago. There are unbelievably expensive signings at Chelsea and almost no one has done them, Lukaku is the latest.
“Now, even if they spend hundreds of millions of pounds. They don’t even play with a center forward. In fact, they hardly even have strikers. And the only striker they had got injured (Armando Broya) and he was loaned out to Southampton last season.”
