AVB has no intentions of bringing new striker to Chelsea

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas says he will not be signing a new striker in January.

Despite losing Nicolas Anelka to Shanghai Shenhua and Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou to Ivory Coast's African Cup of Nations campaign, the Blues manager will stick with Fernando Torres, Daniel Sturridge and Romelu Lukaku as his striking options.

"I don't think so," said the Portuguese when asked if he would go after a striker.

"Sometimes teams generate more goalscoring opportunities for certain people. We are within Man City's range as the most attacking team.

"But we created for different players. That's why we have our goal sheet spread out through everybody, from (Frank) Lampard, to Sturridge, to Raul (Meireles), to (Juan) Mata. It's pretty diverse."
