Former Premier League striker has given his verdict on Nicolas Jackson
It’s getting to the point in the season now where we can really start to form some judgements and verdicts on some of Chelsea’s summer signings.
Of course, the season is long and many things can happen and form and go up and down. Some players also might take longer to find their feet than other players. We saw that example with Mykhailo Mudryk when he arrived in January, he took a very long time to find any kind of good form.
So some of these Chelsea players might still come good, those who aren’t performing yet. And Nicolas Jackson can unfortunately certainly be put in that category.
The striker is just not doing the business for Chelsea yet, and unfortunately at a club like Chelsea, when you are signed to come in and be the goalscorer up top, time is something that not many will give you.
Former Premier League striker Peter Crouch just doesn’t think Jackson is good enough.
“Nicolas Jackson, let’s be honest, is not going to be the answer long-term. He does a lot of great work outside the box, but is he going to get you 15-20 goals? I don’t think so,” Crouch told TNT Sports 2 as cited by The Chelsea Chronicle.
