Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson, hasn’t been too impressed with summer signing Michy Batshuayi, although he believes that the Belgian hasn’t been given enough chance.

The former Arsenal player has told Chelsea to break the bank for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, and he believes the signing of the French attacker will make Chelsea to win the league next season.

“Batshuayi hasn’t brought much to the table but has he really been given the chance?” Merson told Sky Sports.

“When Costa hasn’t played he hasn’t filled in, perhaps he doesn’t look good in training. If he does leave then Chelsea will have to replace him.

“I’d like to see them pay as much as it takes to get Antoine Griezmann because he will win them the Premier League again next year.

“I don’t think Chelsea should get rid of Batshuayi but it will come down the whether the player wants to learn on the fringes or play all the time.”

Griezmann has been on fire this season, netting 16 goals and chipping in with six assists in all competitions.
