Merson questions Chelsea interest in Man City attacker Raheem Sterling

Arsenal title winner Paul Merson has questioned Chelsea's interest in Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling.

Sterling has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as the Blues look to strengthen their squad this summer, with Thomas Tuchel reportedly set to be given £200million to spend.

But Merson believes Sterling would not be a success if he was to move to Chelsea as he doesn't suit their style of play.

The former Arsenal striker told the Daily Star: "Chelsea need a big summer of signings and they might not get that.

"They need at least a couple of defenders because Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are leaving, and they might not be the only ones leaving either.

"But they are stuck with Romelu Lukaku. They won't be able to sell him without making a loss, and who could they get to replace him? Top-class centre forwards are scarce.

"They might go for Raheem Sterling but he plays the Manchester City way. I don't think Raheem Sterling scores 20 goals a season for Chelsea."
