Arsenal legend: Alvaro Morata to Chelsea and Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United

By

Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes Romelu Lukaku should join Manchester United and Alvaro Morata should make a move to Stamford Bridge.

The duo are two of the most wanted strikers in this summer's transfer window.

Recent reports have claimed that the Spaniard will sign for the Red Devils this week and the Belgian will join Antonio Conte at Chelsea later on this month.

"I would say Morata is a better fit than Lukaku for Chelsea," Merson told Sky Sports.

"I think he is a better all-round footballer. Lukaku is a goalscorer and if you look at the stats, the running and the sprints are nowhere near in the same league as Costa.

"Morata has played with world-class players at Madrid and Juventus and he'll be there for the little flick around the corner from Willian or Eden Hazard.

"You have to be bright and lively to play for Chelsea and those teams. My worry would be if Lukaku gets there, would he be on the same wavelength as those players? If he isn't it will keep on breaking down.

"We saw it with Demba Ba when he went to Chelsea. At Newcastle he was great in lots of space in behind to run onto the ball. As soon as Chelsea kick off at Stamford Bridge, 10 people sit behind the ball. It's a completely different game.

"I think Morata fits them better and I think Lukaku fits Man Utd better, where he would go and hit the ground running."
