Chelsea told to make this January signing because of Eden Hazard

Chelsea must sign a new striker in the January transfer window because they rely too heavily on the goals of Eden Hazard.

Sue Smith
That is the opinion of Sky Sports' pundit and former England winger Sue Smith.
Chelsea look set to be without Olivier Giroud for a period of time after he went off injured in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.
The France international has suffered suspected ankle ligament damage and left Selhurst Park on crutches.
Giroud has hardly been in the goals this season though, scoring just once in the Premier League after 16 appearances.
Alvaro Morata at the other hand, has fallen out of favor under Maurizio Sarri, with Eden Hazard often playing centrally in recent weeks.
The Belgian is Chelsea's leading scorer in all competitions this season with 12 goals.
But Smith says it is about time he was given some help on the scoring front.
“They have to [buy a striker],” she said.
“I don’t think they ever really replaced [Diego] Costa.
“That big No 9 that the likes of Hazard and Pedro, Willian can play off.
“Morata did okay last season but he’s never really made it his own, swapping with Giroud.
“I know Hazard’s said he likes to play football with Giroud, like to play off him.
“They’ve even tried Hazard in that false nine and I think they’re too over-reliant on him for goals.
“So I think they have to out and look for a striker.
“But who would they go for?” That is the question on ground now. But as the transfer window opens Tuesday morning, we're hoping for some heavy recruitment up in front.
