Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has achieved plenty of success in west London since arriving in January, with a top-four finish clinched on the last day of the season followed by the Champions League triumph added to his already impressive CV.

But despite the Blues having a stellar season, there are still areas of weakness that need to be addressed in order for a title challenge to be on the cards.

One of those departments is within the frontline, as a lack of goals across the team is currently a huge concern.

Last time out, Jorginho top-scored for Chelsea in the Premier League with seven goals – all coming from the penalty spot – which is exactly why the club is looking to add a world-class striker to their squad.

Erling Haaland and most recently Romelu Lukaku have all been heavily linked with a move to the club, with Chelsea reportedly having three bids turned down for the latter already as Marina Granovskaia works on a deal.

But following the dramatic developments at Barcelona, with Lionel Messi increasingly likely to be joining Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at PSG, perhaps interest in Sergio Aguero may be reignited.

Earlier in the summer, Chelsea were linked with the former Manchester City star, and with reports now emerging that Aguero is angry at broken promises from the club following Messi’s exit, and wants to leave.

With Barcelona still unable to register new players in La Liga due to their financial problems, Aguero, Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay are still not yet eligible to play for the club this season.

Thus, a potential exit could be on the cards for the Argentine striker already. It’s a signing that would get the seal of approval from former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand, who previously reiterated that Aguero would be a great fit for Chelsea.

‘’If I’m Chelsea I take him right now. If I’m Chelsea I go and get him quick!’’ Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five YouTube show.

‘’If I’m them I go and get Aguero if I can’t get a Haaland or someone like that.’’

Aguero would be deemed as a cheaper option and although the 33-year-old is moving towards the end of his career, there’s no doubt that he would add plenty of quality to Chelsea’s attack.

The striker excels at shielding the ball by utilising his low centre of gravity to his advantage along with possessing the knack of scoring goals on a consistent basis.
