Wayne Bridge is expecting Chelsea to bring in a striker this summer and would ‘love’ to see Tottenham star Harry Kane at Stamford Bridge.

The England captain has managed to register an impressive tally of 19 goals and 13 assists in the Premier League this season despite Jose Mourinho’s side’s inconsistent campaign.

With the north Londoners currently in seventh in the table and six points off the top four, Kane is reportedly ready to push for a transfer away from the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in the summer transfer window should they fail to finish in the Champions League places.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have all been credited with an interest in the striker but ex-Blues left-back Bridge wants to see him line up for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

‘I’d love to see Kane go there, I think he’s brilliant,’ Bridge told bettingexpert.com

‘Sometimes money talks. If you look at how Tottenham are doing at the moment, I think there’s a great chance he could end up leaving if he wants to go and win something.

‘I’m not sure if he would go, but I’d love to see him come in and start banging in goals for Chelsea. Chelsea have to be careful with who they buy but I’ll be very surprised if they didn’t bring another striker in.’

Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Manchester City’s departing striker Sergio Aguero have been linked with moves to Chelsea.

Aguero, 32, is calling time on his City career when his contract expires at the end of the season and Bridge feels the prolific Argentine still has lots of goals in him.

‘There could be a few of these players moving – Haaland and Mbappe – and I’d love to see Chelsea snap one of them up, even Aguero,’ he added.

‘He’s leaving City and I don’t think he’s past it, he’s always going to get you goals. When I played with him at City he was just unbelievable and I think he’s still got it.

Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud have done well, Havertz has been playing better and Werner has shown glimpses when playing out wide and he looks quite good out there.

‘I look at my time at Chelsea and we had Hasselbaink, Ider Gudjohnsen, Drogba and Anelka, then after my time Costa, and I don’t see a player in the current team as good as any of these were. Strikers at Chelsea have something to prove and the ones we had were world-class.

‘When you are bought for a fee everyone expects you to hit the ground running and I think there’s pressure on you no matter what, but at Chelsea having people like Drogba and Costa means new players have to live up to that pressure as well.’
