EPL: Carragher-Chelsea yet to address striker challenge despite spending £600m

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has revealed that Chelsea is yet to address their striker position despite spending about £600m over the last two transfer windows.

Carragher said this after Chelsea played a 0-0 draw against Fulham in Friday’s Premier League tie at Stamford Bridge.

Recall that Chelsea spent £320 million in the just-concluded January transfer window in addition to the players recruited in the summer, bringing co-owner Todd Boehly’s spending to a whopping £566 million since he took over the west London club last summer.

Three of the new players, including £107m Premier League record signing, Enzo Fernandez as well as Mykhailo Mudryk and Benoit Badiashile, all started for Graham Potter’s side in Friday’s clash with Fulham.

Speaking after the game, Carragher told Sky Sports: “The thing that leaves you scratching your head a little bit is they have not brought a striker in, they have spent 5 or 600 million.

There is nothing really there right now. Aubameyang’s not in the Champions League squad either, it does feel really glaring that that one big position for them has not been addressed.”
