Nicolas Jackson, a Senegalese player that the Blues signed for the first team, just scored his first goal of the year against Luton Town.
As the Blues struggled to break down opponents in their first two EPL matches this season, there are still discussions about Chelsea adding another striker, but that position appears to be secured for at least the next two years.
Due to the two contrasting profiles they have there, Chelsea appears to be set in the striking department. Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja play for Chelsea.
Jackson is a deft handler. The Senegalese player can play on a defender’s shoulder, has good speed, can dribble, is dedicated to the team, and can also convert chances.
Although Armando Broja moves with more speed, the Albanian is more skillful in the air. Nicolas Jackson’s ability to fly is his sole flaw, but Broja makes up for it.
When Broja fully recovers from his injury layoff, Jackson will be paired up front alongside him. Chelsea will have one of the League’s swiftest attacks with wingers like Sterling and Mudryk supporting them.
Dusan Vlahovic has been associated with the Blues, but if they have faith in Armando Broja and Nicolas Jackson, they may not need to invest money on the Serbian hitman.
