Chelsea told to replace Alvaro Morata with Nigerian-born forward


Football pundit, Chris Kirkland has told Chelsea to replace striker, Alvaro Morata with Nigerian-born forward, Tammy Abraham.

Abraham is currently on loan at Aston Villa from Chelsea and after impressing in the Championship he’s been linked with a permanent move to Premier League side, Wolves.

Kirkland has now urged Chelsea to give the 21-year-old an opportunity in the first team because Morata wants to leave the West London club.

Kirkland told Sky Sports: “Morata looks disinterested as if he wants to move away.

“Olivier Giroud is injured and is not really a long term option.

“When [Eden] Hazard doesn’t score, they don’t look like scoring so up top they are really struggling.

“I would get Tammy Abraham back and give him a go.

“I can’t see them doing that for whatever reason, I think they’ve said that it’s a last case scenario to call him back which I find strange.

“If you look at the five forwards, there’s 22 goals between all five of them, that’s low for that amount of quality, it’s nowhere near enough for a top club like Chelsea.”

Meanwhile, Morata has struggled at Stamford Bridge since joining Chelsea from Real Madrid last summer.

The Spain international has been linked with a move to AC Milan and the Blues manager, Maurizio Sarri is keen to bring in a new attacker following striker, Olivier Giroud’s injury.
