Chelsea are willing to bring in another striker alongside Erling Haaland as appose to just buying the Borussia Dortmund sensation alone, according to 90min.

It is the Blues desire to bolster their centre-forward options, an area that’s been letting them down under Thomas Tuchel.

Haaland remains the Blues’ top transfer priority this summer, with all their attention seemingly directed towards luring him to Stamford Bridge.

However, 90min claim that Chelsea may also be looking to secure another name to either support or play with Haaland.

That candidate apparently being Sergio Aguero.  

Manchester City will be waving farewell to their talismanic no.10 at the end of this season, as he enters into the market as a free agent.

As any top club would, Chelsea have shown interest in snapping up Aguero when he departs City.

A report from the Evening Standard suggested that the 32-year-old was interested in a move to South West London because of its Premier League lure.

The stance of Haaland is a lot less clear, although playing in the Champions League is a given, something that the Blues cannot quite guarantee yet.

What’s certain about the potential acquisitions of the Norway international and Aguero is that they provide goals.

This is an area Chelsea have sometimes struggled with, hence why they’re open to getting two scoring machines rather than just the one.

It’s a fact that both Haaland and Aguero would want to be the main man at whichever team they join next.

Unless Tuchel is going to change his system, I’m not sure how both of them could feature together in the same XI.

However, with players of that pedigree, surely the Blues boss could find a formation that works around them both.

Why don’t we just sign them first then find out later?
