In spite of having Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja on the roster, some Blues fans believe the squad requires one more out-and-out centreforward. Numerous attackers are connected with a move to Chelsea. So what did Pochettino say when quizzed on the striker situation and plans for the market?

"We are looking [in the transfer market] like other teams for options or opportunities."

Jordan Henderson enquiry for Chelsea boss

On Monday, this Pride of London writer gave his verdict on the Blues potentially signing former Liverpool captain, Henderson. And it was not a favourable judgment for the England international; you can read the negative but considered review here. In all likelihood, Henderson was never going to join the west London team anyway; some journalists have noted that the rumour should not have any stock put into it.

Nevertheless, the Chels' gaffer was asked whether or not Henderson would be considered at Stamford Bridge. As you probably know, managers very rarely address targets or players they haven't already contracted. They do this for many reasons such as not damaging or jeopardising unfinished deals.

So, Henderson is reportedly set on returning to the Premier League; multiple English top-flight sides are linked with the 33-year-old. In response to the question, the often honest ex-Tottenham Hotspur chief gave a coy answer. 'Poch' claims that he, CFC recruitment bosses and the club's hierarchy have not discussed 'names' of footballers to possibly acquire. Pochettino claims that he, ownership and the Blues staff are more concerned with outgoing players at present.
