Lampard sent transfer message about Chelsea transfer decision regarding £60 million midfielder
Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley thinks Chelsea made a transfer mistake in the summer by not targeting Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.
Grealish has been in sensational form for the Villans over the past couple of seasons and has firmly established himself as one of the most creative players in the Premier League right now.
He has constantly been linked with a move to one of the big boys of the Premier League, and there was talk that we were interested in the summer, but despite all the hype and transfer rumours, he made the decision to stay at Villa.
He has once again shone in the Premier League, while the clubs big name signings have struggled to adapt to life in South-West London, and Burley has opened up and told Frank Lampard he made the wrong transfer decision not to sign Jack Grealish in the summer
Burley told ESPN FC:”I wouldn’t have been against signing Jack Grealish. He’s been superb again, a fantastic season.
“He has a bit of everything. At the moment Havertz is lost and Werner has lost his confidence.
“Timo Werner is a different kettle of fish because Jack Grealish is a midfielder who can do a bit of everything. Werner is an attacker, and in essence so is Havertz – although he can play a little deeper.
“Grealish would have given them more options than Havertz.”
Grealish is a brilliantly gifted player that should be at a big club, but there is a reason that Lampard did not want him at the Bridge, and that is because he probably does not produce the kind of numbers that Havertz did.
