Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been warned he needs to sign players that won’t take time to settle if he wants to remain as Chelsea boss.

Paul Merson has urged Tuchel to do everything he can to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero because the Argentine striker will suit Chelsea and hit the ground running quickly.

“Sergio Aguero would fit like a glove at Chelsea or Arsenal – but I think he’s going to Spain,” Merson wrote in his column for The Star.

“His next move is a big deal for him because he needs to be in a team that sees a lot of the ball and creates chances for him.

“The days of him creating his own chances are gone now. He’s good enough still to get in the best teams in the world, but he needs a team that plays a certain way.

“Most Premier League teams would love to have him but his wages would be a problem and at his age how many games would he play?”

He added: “I think the way Arsenal play would suit him. Chelsea have loads of creative players and he wouldn’t be short of chances there either.

“Chelsea need a forward. Thomas Tuchel might try and take a chance on him. You know he’s going to hit the ground running.

“Tuchel only has a short-term contract. If they sign somebody else and he takes time to settle, that’s no good for Tuchel.

“But I think Aguero will go back to Spain. He has friends there and knows the league and it’s an easier league to play in.”
