Chelsea could sign another striker next summer claims Jamie Carragher

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Premier League leaders Chelsea will add to their attacking ranks next summer. 

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, the ex-Red has insisted that he doesn't expect Jose Mourinho's side to strengthen in the upcoming January window, but believes they may have to replace veteran Didier Drogba in 2015. 

Drogba joy 

Drogba, who only rejoined the Stamford Bridge outfit this past summer, has enjoyed a successful opening to the season, despite being behind Costa in the pecking order.

And Carragher certainly thinks there is more to come from Drogba, but wouldn't be surprised if the club look to invest once again next summer. 

The Liverpool legend stated: "I don’t think they will make any signings in January, though, because I don’t think they are particularly short anywhere.

"Maybe next season they will be looking to bring in another striker because Drogba will be a year older and maybe to cover for Costa, but I don’t think they are short.

"Just the slight area is up front if Costa has a long lay-off they may need to improve there in the summer, but not right now. Drogba has got a few goals and is still a very good player."

Stoke clash 

Drogba and Co., then, will currently be gearing up for Monday night's showdown with Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium. 

After Manchester City beat strugglers Crystal Palace earlier today, Mourinho's side will be hoping to move three points ahead of their rivals once again by securing all the points against Mark Hughes' side. 

There's no doubt about it, Mourinho will be looking towards Costa and Co. to provide the magic touch once again for his side on Monday evening.
