Osimhen Alone Can’t Help Chelsea — Gallas

Osimhen Alone Can’t Help Chelsea — Gallas

Former Chelsea defender William Gallas says Victor Osimhen alone can’t solve his former club’s problem.

Chelsea have struggled in the Premier League this season despite spending big in the transfer window last summer.

A place in next season’s UEFA Champions League is out of reach as the Blues are currently languishing in 11th position on the Premier League table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side also lost in the final of the Carabao Cup to Liverpool last month.

The Blues have been linked with a move for Osimhen and Gallas insisted that the Nigeria international can’t do the job alone.

“Victor Osimhen to Chelsea? One player won’t make the difference and change things around for Chelsea,” Gallas told Lord Ping.

“Even if they buy one striker, you have to be sure the players around him have the quality to supply that striker.

“The squad is very young, so next year we may see an improvement in the team and they might compete for the Premier League.

“We have to see how many goals Nicolas Jackson will score, he has eight at the moment. If Jackson cannot reach 15 Premier League goals or more, then Chelsea need a top striker, because at the moment they don’t have it.”
