Paul Merson urges Chelsea to sign Werner replacement

Paul Merson wants Chelsea to sign Aguero in the summer.

Man City’s all-time goalscorer Sergio Aguero will leave Etihad in the summer when his contract expires.

He has been linked with multiple Spanish clubs and a handful of Premier League clubs.

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson believes Aguero ticks every box for Thomas Tuchel and can replace the struggling Timo Werner in the striking role.

Merson told Sky Sports: ‘He [Sergio Aguero] ticks the box for me and the way Chelsea play – Chelsea are dominant in football matches, they dictate games and have a lot of possession, they play neat and tidy football around the box and they are looking for that little ball.

‘They are not trying to hit a ball from the halfway line into a load of space, you are playing at Chelsea and when you kick off at Chelsea, you are immediately faced with 10 men behind the ball, so you need an Aguero who is sharp over three to five yards, that little ball down the side and into the box.

‘I like Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud, they are good players, but are they going to win you the Premier League?

‘If you put someone in that team who has scored 20 goals and are second behind Harry Kane and Mo Salah, then that could be another 10, 11, 12, 15 points, it could be 14 winning goals.

‘I think they need a centre-forward who can score goals as Timo Werner has not worked.’
