Chelsea told to wrap up £100 million statement signing after bringing in Werner
Paul Merson has urged Chelsea to sign Manchester United and Liverpool transfer target Jadon Sancho after Timo Werner.
We have already started getting their transfer business done ahead of the summer window, as Frank Lampard knows that his current squad is not good enough to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
Sancho has developed into one of the most coveted players in Europe since leaving Manchester City in 2017, scoring 34 goals in 96 matches for Borussia Dortmund, and Manchester United and Liverpool have both expressed interest in signing Sancho this summer.
But Merson says Roman Abramovich should make a ‘statement’ by securing his signature: ‘I don’t think Chelsea’s spending will stop [with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech],’ he told Starpsort
‘They obviously still want Jadon Sancho, and if they can’t get him they will probably try for Kai Havertz.
‘Either one of them is going to cost close to £100m. But that kind of transfer pays for itself. Chelsea could get five good years out of Sancho and still get a big sell-on.
‘You’ve got every chance of getting your money back with a player like Sancho.
‘And if Abramovich starts coming to matches again, he will want to be entertained. He won’t care about paying £100m for a Sancho if it helps them play good football.
‘Signing Werner is a big statement. But signing Sancho would be an even bigger one.’[the_ad id=”164″]
