Mauricio Pochettino says CHELSEAstill want to sign another forward despite Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson’s impressive performances against Luton Town on Friday night.
The club cruised to a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge – with Sterling scoring twice before setting up Jackson for his first goal, as Pochettino managed to secure his first three points as boss.
It was a very impressive performance from his new look attack – but despite the win – he wants another forward who can ‘provide the team with good balance’.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID –
‘Like last week, when we lose the game, it [transfer plans] is not going to change,’ the manager said in his post-match press conference.
‘We work, the result today was positive, and still we are talking. We’d like a keeper and an offensive player more, of the right profile. We are working to find this profile that I think we need.
‘We cannot change if we lose or win, it’s what we need to provide the team with good balance. Still we need one offensive player more if it is possible to achieve what we want.
‘If not, we are not just going to bring a player in if he’s not the right profile. To only say yes, we have another offensive player, we need to find the profile.’
He added: A different profile, can play striker or at the side or behind, we will see.
‘In the next few days we will take some decisions.’
We do need a striker – but honestly we believe that it is a bit late to get a top-class one now.
