EPL: Tuchel told player to sign that’ll solve Chelsea’s major problem this season
Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has told Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, to sign Wolves star, Ruben Neves.
Merson believes Neves will solve Chelsea’s major problem in midfield this season, adding that he is the type of player missing in Tuchel’s midfield.
He stated this ahead of Chelsea’s away Premier League tie with Wolves on Sunday.
“I think Chelsea are missing Neves,” Merson said on Soccer Saturday.
“I think they are 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 have 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.”
He added, “We’re trying to get Wolves’ best player to go to Chelsea.”
Neves was linked with a move to Arsenal and Manchester United last summer transfer window but ended up staying at Wolves.
The Portuguese star has missed just one Premier League match this season due to suspension.
