Paul Merson wants to sign Champions League winners Spurs & Liverpool

Paul Merson has compared Tottenham and Liverpool target Antonio Rudiger to David Luiz, saying the Chelsea defender “pulled the sand in the fans’ eyes”. as he told Sky Sports News (09/04/22 at 14:30).

The Sky pundit added that if Rudiger leaves Chelsea in the summer he doesn’t think it would be a good buy unless they play a back three.

Tottenham are one club expressing an interest in signing the Champions League winners which would cause quite a stir if that were to happen.

Liverpool, who could potentially lose Joe Gomez in the summer, are another team potentially signing the star without a contract. As reported by Eurosport.

When it comes to playing in a back three, Merson has no trouble with Rudiger, but when playing in a flat back four he begins to wonder what he can bring to the table.

“He fights in a foursome,” Merson said. “I watched him when Tottenham came to Stamford Bridge.

“He did what Newcastle didn’t do the week before, when Kane went deep he just went in with him and followed him everywhere.

“He can do that because they play a threesome at the back. You go with two behind, then you’re in trouble. That’s a problem. You play to your strengths. He’s had a good season.

“He had luck. In a way, he brought sand in the eyes of the fans. He’s not signing with Chelsea and the fans love him. Just because he plays well.

“I think if you don’t play a three then I don’t think it’s a good buy. He plays best in a threesome. He’s like David Luiz. Exactly the same type of player.”

Although Spurs have Antonio Conte on their touchline, it would be quite a shock if Rudiger were to just swap Chelsea’s colors for Tottenham’s.

It is understandable why he would say yes to a team like Liverpool because they are one of the best.

But those at Stamford Bridge will be hoping to find new owners as soon as possible because, as things stand, players like Rudiger are heading for the exit door.

At the age of 29, Rudiger is at the peak of his powers, with a Champions League medal around his neck and worthy of playing for many top teams across Europe.
