Chelsea’s striker search appears to be stepping up, despite Alvaro Morata’s good run of form.

The Spaniard endured a difficult start to life under Maurizio Sarri. We were hoping for a considerable improvement on the poor performances he put in towards the end of last term, but he was unable to raise his game.

Until now…

Morata has scored five games in his last seven games for Chelsea, including a match-winning double against Crystal Palace at the weekend. He has successfully displaced Olivier Giroud and is beginning to show he has what it takes to lead our line.

Chelsea may not be completely convinced that it’ll last, or are merely preparing to bring in some healthy competition for Alvaro. Either way, the Mirror report that Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has emerged as a potential target for us.

Wilson has directly contributed to 11 goals already this season. He would also be classed as home-grown under FA and Champions League regulations. Our pursuit of him would make sense, even if the Cherries would demand a large sum of cash in exchange.

Morata ought to use this as a reminder that he is not untouchable, even when scoring. Chelsea will always be in the hunt to improve and build on what we have within our ranks.

We cannot allow ourselves to stagnate as we have in the past, and this is an example of the Blues’ ensuring history doesn’t repeat itself.
