 Paul Merson tells Chelsea that adding Raheem Sterling to the team would not solve their offensive problems.

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has been linked with a transfer to Stamford Bridge as the Blues attempt to bolster their squad this summer, with Thomas Tuchel apparently poised to be handed a £200 million budget.

Sterling, however, would not be a success if he moved to Chelsea. According to Merson, he does not suit their style of play.

‘Chelsea needs a large summer of players and they might not get it’. The former Arsenal striker said.

‘They are, however, stuck with Romelu Lukaku. They won’t be able to sell him for a profit, and who could they replace him with? Top-tier center forwards is hard to come by’.

‘They may target Raheem Sterling. But he prefers to play for Manchester City. I don’t believe Raheem Sterling gets 20 goals for Chelsea every season’.

‘He loves to show up late for a tap-in in the box at the far post. That is an art form. But at Chelsea, I don’t see the ball blasted across the box like that very frequently, so where does he get his goals?’

Despite a difficult season, Sterling managed to score 13 Premier League goals and provide five assists, including one on the last day of the season when City rallied from behind to defeat Aston Villa and win the Premier League championship.

The 27-year-current old’s deal with the club expires at the end of next season. Sterling is therefore expected to make a decision on his future following England’s Nations League matches in June.

The England international has won the Premier League four times, the League Cup four times, and the FA Cup once since coming from Liverpool in 2015.

Meanwhile, Merson slammed Tuchel and Chelsea’s attacking players, stating, ‘If I’m being honest, I still don’t think Thomas Tuchel understands his best line-up. He has too many alternatives, but his strikers haven’t performed well enough this season’.

‘At Chelsea, there is no consistency. That doesn’t help either because you can’t establish a rapport with the other players. That is also Lukaku’s issue. Granted, I don’t believe he works as hard as he should. But he hasn’t been surrounded by the same guys week after week’.

‘They chop and change,’ says the narrator. They need to adjust their mindset as well, because when they’re on it, they’re no different from Manchester City or Liverpool.’
