Chelsea are reportedly interested in a move for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Speaking about Thomas Tuchel’s side on Match of The Day, Shearer said: “I think they’ve made some very good signings. But, like Everton, there is no doubt that Chelsea need that [centre] forward as well.
“I know they’ve got [Armando] Broja, but it might take time for him, and in the meantime, they’ve lost [Romelu] Lukaku, they need [to bring in] a centre-forward.”
