Transfer: He’s World’s Best Finisher – Merson Tells Chelsea Name Of Player To Sign

Former Arsenal midfielder, Paul Merson, has urged Chelsea to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United this summer.

Merson believes Ronaldo is the best finisher in the world and would score many goals for Chelsea that will help them close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City.

Ronaldo is reportedly looking to leave Manchester United this summer, and Chelsea were among the clubs linked with him.

However, Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has decided against signing the Portugal captain this summer and wants to focus on other talents.

Writing in his column for Daily Star, Merson said, “Chelsea won’t finish higher than third next season unless they sign a world-class striker. And there is one player ideally suited to fill the role still on the market – Cristiano Ronaldo. Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Natha Ake are all good players and they all help Chelsea now.”

He added: “But it’s up front where they really need help because Kai Havertz is not really a striker for me and doesn’t guarantee you 20 goals a season. And that is something Ronaldo certainly would.

“Chelsea dominates virtually every game they play and they are playing on the edge of the other team’s box. You’ve got Ben Chilwell and Reece James, two of the best crosses of a ball in the world who can put the ball in the box. Who’s the best finisher in the world if you can put the ball in the box with quality? Ronaldo!”
