Paul Merson has slammed the signings of Chelsea as he believed they didn’t improve the Blues team as he defends former Brighton manager.

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson claims that only former Benfica player Enzo Fernández and Badiashile are the only ones who have improved the English club’s squad since they came in.

Chelsea broke all the records in the last winter market to try to rejoin the Premier and compete in the Champions League. So far, neither one thing nor the other, and with the passing of the days it is increasingly difficult for them to be in the next Champions League.

The new additions do not finish settling and in England they point to the coach, Potter, but they are also beginning to look at the management of said signings and if they really are better than what they already had .

Paul Merson, while speaking to Sky Sport, stated that Chelsea has rushed into signings: “ Why are you buying a lot of players who are no better than the ones you already have? None of them is improving the level of the team except Enzo Fernández and Badiashile. You cannot tell me that Noni Madueke is a better player than Raheem Sterling or Christian Pulisic” he assured.

Merson, in addition, is very critical of the money that the signing of Mudryk cost, in relation to what he is demonstrating about the green: “ They brought Mykhailo Mudryk for 100 million and, except for a 20-minute cameo, he has not shown anything . For that price he shouldn’t need time to adjust.”

Everyone points out that Potter is Chelsea’s main problem, but the former player comes out to defend the coach: “ People think that Potter is not the right man for the job , but I think he is. For me, I think you have to give it time. With these players you can’t change the dynamics of Chelsea too quickly,” Merson concluded.
