Chelsea needs two signing

Chelsea desperately needs these two signings in the upcoming summer transfer window

Merson said to Sky Sports “I wouldn’t say Chelsea need a new manager because Antonio Conte is one of the best in the world but I do think he will leave and I just think it needs to be done sooner rather than later,” and added “Arsenal have done their business right as Unai Emery has now got time to improve his squad.”

While talking about the Chelsea boss, he said: “Chelsea need to get it done quickly because if they don’t get players in they won’t win anything as anyone who comes in won’t be better than Conte.” He then added, “I think they need strengthening at the back with a centre-half and another forward.”

He also expressed his thought about Morata while stating “I’m a big fan of Alvaro Morata’s but I just don’t know whether he’s up to the Premier League week-in, week-out so I think they’ll sell him and get another striker in.” Besides, he also gave his verdict on Giroud and told: “Olivier Giroud has proven to be a great buy but I’d like to see another forward in.” While talking about Lewandoski, he said: “I’d like to see Robert Lewandoski but without Champions League football the price would have to be right.”

According to the recent rumors, Chelsea has already shortlisted the replacement of Antonio Conte. Ex-Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is currently in line to replace Conte. Besides, Blues are now also trying to get Kalidou Koulibaly on their side. They already started negotiating with Italian agent Enrico Fedele for the potential signing of the Senegalese centre-back. Fedele, on the other hand, stated Koulibaly at Chelsea? It depends on the offer,” and added, “No player is non-transferable, I say this as an agent, if an indecent offer arrives.”
