Former Arsenal midfielder and football pundit, Paul Merson, has recently expressed his concerns regarding Chelsea‘s transfer business this summer. Merson believes that the club is in a weak situation due to their failure to sign a top-class striker. According to him, they are relying heavily on Timo Werner, who is yet to prove himself in the Premier League, and Romelu Lukaku, who has a point to prove.

Merson voiced his thoughts during Sky Sports‘ The Debate, where he stated, “I think Chelsea is in a bit of a weak situation. They haven’t got a top-class striker and they need one. They’re relying on Timo Werner, who hasn’t done it yet, and they’re bringing in Romelu Lukaku, who’s a good player but has a point to prove. I don’t think they’re in a great position.”

Chelsea has already made several high-profile signings this summer, including the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Ben Chilwell, and Marcus Bettinelli. However, the club has also seen several key players depart, including Olivier GiroudFikayo Tomori, and Tammy Abraham.

Despite this, Chelsea remains one of the favorites to challenge for the Premier League title this season, with many predicting that the team will continue to improve under the guidance of manager Thomas Tuchel. The German coach led Chelsea to Champions League glory last season, as well as a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The potential signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan is expected to bolster Chelsea’s attack. The Belgian striker has been in impressive form in recent years, scoring 24 goals in Serie A last season and helping Inter Milan to win the league title. However, some have questioned whether Lukaku is the right fit for Chelsea’s style of play, which emphasizes quick, dynamic movement and intricate passing.
