Arsenal legend Paul Merson has urged Chelsea to sign Manchester United and Liverpool transfer target Jadon Sancho after Timo Werner’s transfer is completed.

“I don’t think Chelsea’s spending will stop [with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech],” the Arsenal legend told Starsport.

“They obviously still want Jadon Sancho, and if they can’t get him they will probably try for Kai Havertz.

“Either one of them is going to cost close to £100m. But that kind of transfer pays for itself. Chelsea could get five good years out of Sancho and still get a big sell-on.

“You’ve got every chance of getting your money back with a player like Sancho.

“And if Abramovich starts coming to matches again, he will want to be entertained. He won’t care about paying £100m for a Sancho if it helps them play good football.

“Signing Werner is a big statement. But signing Sancho would be an even bigger one.”
