Paul Merson has sent a warning to Chelsea, as they are interested in signing Raheem Sterling this summer.
Thomas Tuchel is aiming to bring the Manchester City star to Stamford Bridge as they want to strengthen their squad this summer.
According to Daily Mail, the Blues are ready to pay £200million to Pep Guardiola’s side to get the forward.
However, the pundit believes it would not be a success, as the player doesn’t suit Chelsea’s style of play.
Talking to Daily Star, the former Arsenal player admitted:
“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?”. added Merson.
