Chelsea handed reasons why Raheem Sterling won’t be good signing for them

Paul Merson has warned Chelsea that signing Raheem Sterling will not be the solution to their attacking woes.

The Manchester City forward has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as the Blues look to strengthen their squad this summer, with Thomas Tuchel reportedly set to be given £200million to spend.

But Merson believes Sterling would not be a success if he was to move to Chelsea as he doesn’t suit their style of play.

The former Arsenal striker told the Daily Star: “Chelsea need a big summer of signings and they might not get that.

“But they are stuck with Romelu Lukaku. They won’t be able to sell him without making a loss, and who could they get to replace him? Top-class centre forwards are scarce.

“They might go for Raheem Sterling but he plays the Manchester City way. I don’t think Raheem Sterling scores 20 goals a season for Chelsea.

“He likes to arrive late in the box at the far post for a tap-in. There’s an art to that. But I don’t see that ball getting whipped across the box like that too often at Chelsea, so where does he get his goals from?”

The 27-year-old’s current contract with the club ends at the end of next season and Sterling is reportedly set to wait until after England’s Nations League fixtures in June before making a decision on his future.

Meanwhile, Merson was also critical of Tuchel and Chelsea’s attacking players, saying: ‘I still don’t think Thomas Tuchel knows his best line-up if I’m being honest. He has too many options but not enough of his forwards have done the business this season.

“There’s no consistency at Chelsea. That doesn’t help either because you can’t build up an understanding with the players around you.

“That’s Lukaku’s problem as well. Granted, I don’t think he works hard enough. But he hasn’t had the same players around him week in week out either.

“They chop and change. The mentality has to change as well because when they are on it, they are no different to Manchester City and Liverpool.”

Liverpool are “willing to trigger £42m release clause for Barcelona starlet”

Liverpool are ready to launch a bid to land Barcelona’s teenage sensation Gavi according to reports in Spain.

The 17-year-old’s agent with the club expires in the summer of 2023 and he has been linked to a number of top sides over the past season.

Diario Sport have reported that Gavi’s agent, Ivan de la Pena, is at odds with Barcelona officials over a new contract at the Nou Camp.

It’s stated that as a result, Barcelona are under threat from Liverpool who are keen in signing the midfield starlet.

A report from the same publication earlier, said that De la Pena was unhappy with club president Joan Laporta, for comments he made suggesting Gavi’s representatives were dragging out contract negotiations and delaying their decision.

De la Pena instead contests that Gavi is yet to receive a formal renewal proposal from the club.

Gavi, who has come through the club’s famous La Masia academy, would prefer to stay in Barcelona as long as they can come to terms on a new contract.

Liverpool though would be able to offer the player a higher salary, given Barcelona’s financial situation at present.

Gavi first broke into Barcelona’s first at the beginning of the season and has enjoyed a great breakthrough campaign.

The 17-year-old has made 47 appearances in all competitions, in which he has contributed two goals and six assists to his name.

He has also earned six caps for Luis Enrique’s Spanish national team, after receiving a shock first call-up for their Nations League win over Italy in October.

Gavi has been linked with a number of other sides including Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich this season.
