However, there has been some debate as to whether Chelsea need a more proven and experienced striker than the 22-year-old.

It has been widely reported that Chelsea plan to sign a top-class number nine in the January transfer market, and failing that in the summer.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is said to be Chelsea’s first-choice option in the position, even if there is no chance of signing him until the end of the season.

However, Jackson’s hattrick has now raised the question whether Chelsea should hold off a while longer.

The striker now has six goals in all competitions for Chelsea this season. This includes five in the Premier League.
