Ruben Loftus-CheekPedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi have all spent time on the sidelines over the Christmas period, and Sarri has indicated that he may bring in a fresh face in the final third.

The Italian tactician in an interview as quoted by the Telegraph, said: “I think that at the moment I don’t need another striker.

“Maybe another winger, because now we are in trouble with the injuries of Pedro, of Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek. At the moment I have no option for the wingers.”

Meanwhile the London club have been heavily linked with Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic and have approached AC Milan for Suso’s transfer fee.
