The 2021-22 season promises to be a huge one as clubs are preparing ahead of time to have the best of season.
The target for Chelsea will be to oust Manchester City as Premier League champions, and it won’t be an easy task as well.
Football pundit Paul Merson has tipped Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool as the teams to fight for the title next season.
However, Merson believes Chelsea must sign a top striker to bang in the goals if they want to beat Manchester City to the title, as he doesn’t see Timo Werner as that kind of striker.
Paul Merson tells Sportskeeda: “In my opinion, Chelsea need a forward. I don’t know what the deal is with Erling Haaland, but they need someone who can score 20 Premier League goals a season.
“Timo Werner is a different kind of player – he’s a willing runner who works hard for the team and is very unselfish.
“However, he doesn’t strike me as someone who can score 20 goals a season, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.”
