Chelsea add Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno to shopping list

Chelsea are eyeing Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is keen on bringing in a new centre-forward to Stamford Bridge due to Timo Werner's struggles in front of goal.

Fichajes reports Spanish star Moreno has been identified as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland following a superb season at Villarreal.

It has been stated that Chelsea will only move for Moreno should they be priced out of a deal to sign Haaland.

Moreno, 29, chipped in with an incredible 30 goals and 11 assists in 46 games in all competitions.

He even scored the opener against Manchester United in his side's Europa League final victory, before finding the back of the net in the mammoth penalty shootout.
