Ruud Gullit - Chelsea still need Modric in January

Chelsea legend Ruud Gullit reckons the Blues still need Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric and has tipped them to make another move in the January transfer window.

Modric was Chelsea's main target in the summer but they failed to land the Croatian despite a number of bids which culminated in a £40 million offer in the final days of the transfer window.

The 26-year-old is now in talks over a new contract at Tottenham but Gullit believes Chelsea are still lacking creativity and will make a fresh move for Modric in January.

“The player Chelsea still need, for me, is Modric,” Gullit said at the Golden Foot awards in Monte Carlo.
