Reports today have claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is now going to have much more say in transfers at Chelsea going forwards.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the manager will approve signings in a move very rarely seen traditionally at Chelsea.

Because of this, Pochettino no doubt already has one eye on the upcoming transfer market, which will open again in January.

When looking at his starting side, the regular starting XI is beginning to take shape.

However, one position which is a notable weakness at this stage is striker. Goals have in the most not been flowing too quickly this season.

Nicolas Jackson has started the majority of games up top since his summer addition, however he has struggled to find the net on a regular basis.

Pochettino must sign Toney
His recent suspension gave Armando Broja the perfect opportunity to start, having just recovered from a serious knee injury.

The academy graduate took his chance in the West London derby, finding the net in the 2-0 win.

However, it does feel as if this role can be strengthened, and they should look no further than just down the road in West London.

Ivan Toney is almost certainly going to be on the move in January, with a number of top teams interested in signing him when he returns to action.

With the Chelsea attack just missing its recognised spearhead at this stage, Pochettino should find it straight forward convincing Toney he can succeed here.

The Englishman was only behind Erling Haaland and Harry Kane for goals last season, and certainly has the capabilities to star for the Blues if he joins.
