“I think he’d be fantastic in the Chelsea side” – Former Blues star wants this Premier League-winning forward at club

Jamie Vardy

Former Chelsea star Dennis Wise believes the club have to move for another striker and has named Jamie Vardy as someone who could do a job at Stamford Bridge.

The Englishman has enjoyed several fruitful years at Leicester City and Wise believes the forward will guarantee goals for the Blues.

Speaking at the inaugural Sportsperson with a Personality Awards (h/t Express), Wise ruled out moves for some of the top strikers in England:

“I would’ve looked to bring in a third striker over the summer, someone who guarantees goals.

“You’re not going to get Aguero, you’re not going to get Kane, but for me there’s a third option in Jamie Vardy.

“He’s a natural goalscorer in a team that doesn’t create loads of chances, I think he’d be fantastic in the Chelsea side.”

Olivier Giroud of Chelsea

The former Chelsea player didn’t criticise Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud but claimed they are different:

“Giroud and Morata are very different players.

“Morata is a confidence player, he’s an excellent finisher, whereas Giroud holds the play up far better.”

Vardy has scored five times in the Premier League this season, and the Englishman is known for his pace and energy on the pitch.

The Leicester man is 31 at the moment, and it will be interesting to see if we make a move in the winter window for another striker.

Michy Batshuayi is also on the books, but the Belgian is currently on loan at Valencia, but has found the back of the net just twice for Los Che.
