Merson thinks Chelsea should go all out to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer if Michy Batshuayi should leave the club.
Batshuayi has been struggling for game time at Stamford Bridge this season since arriving from Marseille, with Diego Costa ahead of him in the pecking order.
And now the Belgium international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Merson told Sky Sports: “Batshuayi hasn’t brought much to the table but has he really been given the chance?
“When Costa hasn’t played he hasn’t filled in, perhaps he doesn’t look good in training.
“If he does leave then Chelsea will have to replace him.
“I’d like to see them pay as much as it takes to get Antoine Griezmann because he will win them the Premier League again next year.
“I don’t think Chelsea should get rid of Batshuayi but it will come down to whether the player wants to learn on the fringes or play all the time.”
