Hazard reacts to Chelsea’s links to Ashley Barnes and Peter Crouch

Eden Hazard believes Chelsea have enough strikers amid ongoing speculation the club are looking to try and add more firepower to their squad.

The Premier League champions have shown interest in a number of ‘traditional No. 9s’ this month, including Stoke star Peter Crouch, Roma’s Edin Dzeko and Burnley forward Ashley Barnes.

However, despite the links, Belgium playmaker Hazard does not believe that the Blues not to add to their striking options.

He told the Evening Standard: “I think we’re happy with the team we have. It depends how you want to play. “We have two very good strikers in Alvaro [Morata] and Michy [Batshuayi]. If they are not ready to play I can play striker, so I don’t think we need [another one].

“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.”
