Chelsea owner Todd Boehly told he ‘needs’ to sign two players before transfer deadline

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has been urged to continue spending before the transfer window closes on Thursday after the Blues’ 2-1 defeat to Southampton. Thomas Tuchel’sside have spent over £200million on transfers this summer as Wesley Fofana was recently announced after the signings of Raheem Sterling, Marc Cucurella, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chukwuemeka and Gabriel Slonina, but they have been told to keep adding to the squad before the window slams shut.

Former Chelsea defender Scott Minto has claimed that after signing Fofana in a £70m deal from Leicester, the Blues “need” to resume negotiations for Everton star Anthony Gordon and add another striker to Tuchel’s forward options.

“They [Chelsea] need an out-and-out striker and listening to you guys talk about Anthony Gordon, maybe they need him playing with passion as well as skill and technique as well,” Minto told talkSPORT.

“At the moment they have a lot of flair players, but they’re not getting on the ball and in the second half it was Southampton who stepped it up and fully deserved the three points in the end. It was disappointing for Chelsea and it’s going to be an interesting last couple of days before the transfer window finishes.”
