Paul Merson believes Arsenal and Chelsea should do everything they can to sign Sergio Aguero – but believes the Manchester City star is set to return to Spain.

City announced this week that Aguero will leave the Eithad when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The former Atletico Madrid star is said to favour a return to Spain with Barcelona reportedly his favoured choice.

Clubs in England however are keen to keep him in the Premier League with Chelsea viewing the striker as a possible alternative to Erling Haaland, with competition fierce for the Borussia Dortmund star.

And Merson believes Aguero would suit the Blues or his former side Arsenal perfectly.

‘Sergio Aguero would fit like a glove at Chelsea or Arsenal – but I think he’s going to Spain,’ Merson wrote in his column for The Star.

‘His next move is a big deal for him because he needs to be in a team that sees a lot of the ball and creates chances for him.

‘The days of him creating his own chances are gone now. He’s good enough still to get in the best teams in the world, but he needs a team that plays a certain way.

‘Most Premier League teams would love to have him but his wages would be a problem and at his age how many games would he play?’

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel signed an 18-month contract at Stamford Bridge when brought into replace Frank Lampard in January.

And given the pressure to deliver instant results in west London, Merson believes Aguero could be an ideal solution.

‘I think the way Arsenal play would suit him. Chelsea have loads of creative players and he wouldn’t be short of chances there either.

‘Chelsea need a forward. Thomas Tuchel might try and take a chance on him. You know he’s going to hit the ground running.

‘Tuchel only has a short-term contract. If they sign somebody else and he takes time to settle, that’s no good for Tuchel.

‘But I think Aguero will go back to Spain. He has friends there and knows the league and it’s an easier league to play in.’
