Thing is though Lucky, the scouting of attacking players has still been quite poor. Chelsea in recent years have spent quite big on Lukaku, Werner, Havertz, Ziyech, Pulisic, Morata, Batshuayi. In fact I’d say you have to go as far back as Diego Costa in terms of finding the last top top striker you had. And it’s no surprise that’s the last time Chelsea won the league. And you could probably throw the same thing at Man Utd. The last top striker they bought at the peak of their powers was probably Van Persie. And again, that’s the last time they won the league. Might say the same thing with Arsenal last winning the league with Henry.
Is it more FFP having an impact in trying to either bring in a younger prospect or a top striker in their twilight years?
