Chelsea’s goal-scoring issues have been long-standing, and they have only gotten worse in 2022/23. Despite possessing one of the league’s best defensive records, the Blues have a negative goal difference and have only scored 36 goals this season.

‘Incredibly tough’ – Chelsea stars should expect Mauricio Pochettino to fix Frank Lampard issue

The Blues have struggled to convert this term due to a struggle to create opportunities in the right spots and some wayward shooting. It is probably unsurprising that a No.9 is one of Chelsea’s top goals for the upcoming transfer window.
Before a late move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the West London club planned to build their assault on Raheem Sterling. The England international signed a £45 million contract, which may be increased by £10 million provided a series of performance-related add-ons are completed.
Given Chelsea and Sterling’s troubles, few would call the deal a complete success, but the 28-year-old has been the Blues’ leading scorer thus far, with nine goals and four assists. It didn’t take much, but Sterling showed Chelsea what he’s capable of in the second half against Nottingham Forest.
The former Liverpool and Manchester City winger has joined the Premier League’s 100-goal club, although he has often done it alongside other players who could share the scoring burden. Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero are both good possibilities for deflecting focus.
Scott Trotter and Bobby Vincent talked about Sterling’s future and how Chelsea getting a new forward, despite interest in Victor Osimhen, may assist last summer’s signing to prosper under Mauricio Pochettino.
“They want Victor Osimhen, but I think about a thousand clubs do right now,” Bobby stated. There’s nothing advanced, but I heard about a month ago that Chelsea was a big fan of his, and who wouldn’t be? I believe he has 25 or so goals in Serie A this season, which has greatly aided Napoli’s title win. “He’s one of the hottest striker properties in the world right now, and he’s still relatively young.” “Chelsea wants him, but Napoli is adamant about not selling. It does not necessarily follow that they will not. In terms of transfers, their president is a really difficult man to deal with.”
“Osimhen is on Chelsea’s radar, and they do want a No.9,” he continued. Christopher Nkunku is on his way, but it is unclear where he will play. According to the interest in Osimhen, he won’t be the go-to No.9. Chelsea needs someone, and I believe you mentioned Sterling and easing the burden on him; if Chelsea can get a 25-30 goal season striker, which is easier said than done, it will relieve the burden on Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling, Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, and may result in a better return in goals.”
