Mourinho: Chelsea need ‘killer’ striker

Jose Mourinho has said Chelsea need to sign a striker this summer, one with a killer instinct in front of goal, Sky Sports has reported.

Chelsea drew 0-0 with Norwich City on Sunday and have been consistently linked with a host of forwards since Mourinho returned to the club last summer. Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa is the name currently mentioned as a Chelsea target and it has been suggested Fernando Torres could move in the other direction, having started his career at Atletico.

Mourinho has told Chelsea TV that a goal scorer is what the Blues need, particularly when faced with opposition who set out to defend, rather than take the game to Chelsea. “We have good players, but we don't have the kind of striker able to, in a short space, to make an action, to score a goal, to open the gate,” Mourinho said.

“In these kind of matches you just need to open the gate. When you open the gate, the gate is open and you go on to win much more. We weren't able to do that. We have to try to win as a team, to improve as a team, but also add the attacking player with that killer instinct and the number of goals that push teams to different levels.

“It's something our club is going to try (to do), respecting obviously that we have good strikers.”

The draw with the Canaries means Chelsea are a point behind leaders Manchester City and second-place Liverpool but have played a game more than both of their rivals. Liverpool play Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park tonight and will return to the top of the table with a win, but City would go top for the final day of the season with a midweek win over Aston Villa.
