Robson urges Chelsea to sign a striker better than Abraham

ESPN pundit Stewart Robson has urged the Chelsea hierarchy to look into the signing of a new striker, who can fare better than Tammy Abraham in the centre forward department.

Abraham has had a stunning season with the Blues in all competitions and he recently bagged his 14th goal of the campaign in the 2-1 comeback win over Arsenal on the road.

Despite this, Robson feels there is a lack of competition for the striker's position at the Bridge and the Blues need to recruit another marksman, who can take the standard to a higher level.

"I think probably he’s given up on Giroud as a second striker so he probably needs cover for Tammy Abraham. Tammy Abraham’s done quite well but I’m sure if they can get a second striker or one that’s better than Tammy Abraham, that would be a good signing," he told.

Chelsea go into the international break in the fourth spot. They are currently four points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United. Their next game comes against Brighton on the road on New Year's Day.
