Can Maurizio Sarri sign a striker to light up Stamford Bridge again?

Goals are drying up at Stamford Bridge. Sarriball hasn’t lit up Chelsea’s style as fans had expected from their new Italian manager. All the passing and little goals are making them look extremely dull at times. Inefficient finishing and inconsistency have plagued Maurizio Sarri thus far. The Blues have only scored 40 goals in the Premier League; the lowest among the top six. Eden Hazard's carrying them on his own, having contributed to fifty per cent of those goals with ten goals and assists. 

With no proper individual leading their lines, frustration has mounted up the club and its fans. Spaniards Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata have scored seven and five respectively, mostly in patches. Willian’s scored three with his inconsistency agitating fans. Olivier Giroud’s only scored one, having mostly operated from the bench. His compatriot N’Golo Kante’s scored two more than him.

Chelsea’s diverse midfielders and defenders’ have chipped in with timely goals, but the lack of a clinical striker up front is hampering them. It’s mounting pressure on Hazard to turn up every game to save them from dismay. With the Blues desperately craving for a world-class striker, we’ll look at three options who can end their goal-scoring woes.
