Chelsea advised to sign Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves this January

Ruben Neves has been pivotal for Wolves for many seasons.

The Blues have hit a difficult run of form in their last few games in the Premier League.

Chelsea fan Paul Merson believes that they are missing a player like Neves up their ranks.

The 24-year old midfielder has been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal for the past two summers but a move to Stamford Bridge could be on the cards.

“I think Chelsea are missing a Neves,” Merson said on Soccer Saturday.

“I think they’re missing a player who can spray the ball round the pitch.

“[Mateo] Kovacic likes taking players on, Jorginho won’t kick the ball further than 10 yards, just keeps it going, [N’Golo] Kante’s an all-around-the-pitch kind of player.

“They’ve got no one who sprays the ball around, like a [James] Ward-Prowse or a Neves.

“The amount of times the other night when they made runs, the front three, where they ran and then they spun, and no one’s hitting them, no one’s hitting them.

“That’s the problem for me, Chelsea need someone who’s spraying the ball about.

“[Kante’s] not going to hit that ball.”
