Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has described as bold and strange Chelsea’s decision to sign Cole Palmer from Manchester.
The Blues signed the 21-year-old in a £45 million deal from Manchester City on transfer deadline day.
Before his switch to the west London side, Palmer made just three Premier League starts for Pep Guardiola’s side.
“Chelsea’s decision to spend £45million on Cole Palmer, a 21-year-old with three Premier League starts, strikes me as strange and extremely bold,” Souness told the Daily Mail.
“It might all come together for Chelsea, who are spending a fortune on players of enormous potential who one day, with a big question mark attached, might be top men for them.
“Their supporters, like all others, want instant success. After a miserable season, they will have limited patience and won’t be slow in venting their frustration. I can see where they’re coming from.”.
