‘Chelsea should sign the next Teddy Sheringham over Sergio Aguero’

Blues legend Hudson thinks the club should pass on signing free agent Aguero and instead focus on another striker.

Alan Hudson believes Sergio Aguero isn’t a good fit for Chelsea and urged the club to sign Harry Kane, who he likens to former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham.

Manchester City striker Aguero will become a free agent at the end of this season. His prolific record in the Premier League and availability for a free transfer make him a top target for any club. Barcelona and Chelsea are rumored to be the frontrunners for his signature.

But Hudson, who won the European Cup Winners’ Cup with Chelsea in 1971, believes his old club should give Aguero a miss.

“Aguero would not suit Chelsea because their build-up is too slow, and for him it’d be a step down in England,” the former Blues midfielder told CaughtOffside.

“I don’t see him staying over here.

“Harry Kane would be a perfect fit (for Chelsea) or in any team with ambition. He is simply the best and will continue to be that for the next five years. He is the next Teddy Sheringham.”

Kane, of course, is enjoying a rich spell of form this season. The Tottenham striker is the Premier League’s top scorer on 19 goals in 28 appearances, and he’s also supplied 13 assists for his teammates.

But Spurs’ failure to win silverware in recent seasons has fueled doubts over Kane’s future. The 27-year-old hasn’t ruled out a summer exit either as he approaches his peak days as a footballer.
