PREMIER - Chelsea urged to sign Leeds United's star midfielder
Former Arsenal star Paul Merson thinks that Raphinha would be a great fit for Chelsea should they look at landing him in the transfer window. The Leeds United forward has impressed since sealing the switch from Rennes last year and played an important role in their ninth-place finish last campaign.
He has been one of the shining lights this season, netting three goals which included a vital equaliser versus Everton back in August. The Brazilian’s excellent form has drawn plenty of interest from across Europe, including Thomas Tuchel’s side.
The Blues may need a wide attacker should Hakim Ziyech depart, whilst Callum Hudson-Odoi has struggled to become a regular starter since Thomas Tuchel was appointed.
Merson stated that Raphinha could be a suitable fit for Chelsea and says that Raphinha has what it takes to make the step up if the Blues pursue the South American star.
