Arsenal legend Paul Merson has hailed Chelsea’s signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid.

The Chelsea midfield is already blessed with Jorginho, Kante and Mateo Kovacic, and the addition of Saul is just a dream for any manager.

Writing in his column in the Daily Star, Paul Merson praised Chelsea’s midfield quality as he admitted that the trio of Kovacic, Kante and Jorginho was top class alone, and the addition of Saul makes it a dream.

He wrote: “Chelsea now have the midfield dreams are made of after getting Saul on deadline day. What a phenomenal signing that is.

“He’s in his prime. He’s just won La Liga and you get him on loan. That is amazing. Chelsea already have three great midfielders in N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

“Saul is the fourth. They are going to need him. They are going deep in every competition this season.”
