Former Premier League star Gabriel Agbonlahor has hit out at Chelsea summer signing Marc Cucurella, questioning the club’s decision to spend so much money on him.
Cucurella looked a classy performer during his time at Brighton and was linked with Manchester City by Sky Sports and others before ultimately making a big-money move to Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old hasn’t made the most convincing start at Chelsea, however, with Ben Chilwell looking a better option when he came on and scored in yesterday’s 2-1 win over West Ham.
Speaking on talkSPORT in the video clip below, Agbonlahor slammed Cucurella, saying he couldn’t see why Chelsea paid so much for a player who looks poor technically and erratic with his decision-making…
? “Chelsea have to finish in the top two. Top four isn’t enough.”
? “I don’t like watching them play. They’re boring, boring Chelsea.”

Chelsea fans will hope Cucurella can improve and end up looking a worthwhile investment, and it may just be that he needs a bit more time to settle.
It was a busy summer for the west London giants as they also signed big names like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Wesley Fofana and Raheem Sterling, but these new additions will need to hit the ground running after a slow start for Thomas Tuchel’s side in the Premier League.
