This comes amidst the several enquiries for Roma’s Edin Dzeko, 31, West Ham’s Andy Carroll, 29, and Stoke’s Peter Crouch, 36 by Chelsea as they seek to make up for the inconsistencies of Spanish Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi.
After the 4 -0 victory over Brighton on saturday. The winger commented: “We have two very good strikers in Alvaro and Michy. If they are not ready to play I can play striker, so I don’t think we need (another one). Football is simple – keep the ball on the ground and try [to play] like we did (against Brighton),” said Hazard.
“Because we are missing chances people are saying we need another striker, but if we are scoring goals, we are the best attack in the league and no-one can say we need a striker,” he added.
“Who is the best team this year? Manchester City. The strikers, (Gabriel) Jesus and (Sergio) Aguero, are not big,” Hazard assessed.
“It’s simple. If you want to play with long balls you need a target man, if you want to keep the ball on the floor you need a small guy.
Eden Hazard has made 20 appearances in the Premier League this season for Chelsea and has contributed 8 goals and 4 assists.
