Chelsea have been hit with a transfer ban and Paul Merson believes that former Chelsea have three players in the club they can turn to.
“I mean they’ll need their players, they won’t be able to just sell their players and take a chance on these youngsters,” Merson told Sky Sports. “But they need to come in the team every now and then, they need more game time, there’s no doubt about that.”
“But they’re still going to need a squad Chelsea and I don’t think they’ll sell anybody. I think it’s worrying. But, at the same time, let’s give the kids… I mean the lads you’ve just talked about are all good players and they’ve all got potential to be very, very good so you never know, until you give them a run in the team.”
“Loftus-Cheek, I’m a Chelsea fan, he’s never let Chelsea down. You know Hudson-Odoi seems to get better every week he plays. And Tammy Abraham is scoring goals at a big football club at Aston Villa. So it wouldn’t be any nerves for him if he came back and played for Chelsea.”
“It’s not like he’s playing in front of 6-7,000 people every week in League Two. He’s playing for a massive club who you’re playing under pressure for for Aston Villa. For me, it wouldn’t hurt for them to come back.”
