Chelsea could make an approach for another striker in the transfer window amid their woeful Premier League form.

The Blues bolstered their strikeforce with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last summer, but the Gabon star is clearly past his prime.

As a result, manager Graham Potter is eyeing another experienced striker and it appears they could move for Marcus Thuram.

The 25-year-old has been in exemplary form for Borussia Monchengladbach this campaign with 13 goals and four assists.

He could be prised away from the German side for just €15m and Chelsea seem optimistic of luring him in the near future.

Thuram has yet to make a decision regarding his situation. His current contract with his club expires in the summer.

Meanwhile, Chelsea recently unveiled young striker David Datro Fofana, but he is unlikely to play a big role this term.

Potter has already confirmed that the Ivorian is one for the future and he may not be involved much in the current season.
