Chelsea have been linked with a number of attacking talents, and PSG star Neymar have been among the names in recent weeks.

PSG have made it clear that they no longer need the Brazilian, and are open to selling him.

Neymar was booed by the PSG supporters in the wake of their Champions League exit last season, and is no longer indispensable at the club.

The Brazilian is said to be available for around £45m, as PSG want to do away with the Brazilian.

Former Chelsea star Gus Poyet has now warned Chelsea to forget about a move for Neymar.

According to Poyet, Neymar would struggle to cope with the English game.

“Chelsea shouldn’t try to sign Neymar,” Gus Poyet told Lord Ping.

“I think he will stay at PSG. I think after [Kylian] Mbappe announced he was staying and with their ambition to try and win the Champions League, I can’t see him leaving.

“I don’t think he would adapt quickly to English football with how physical it is. I can’t see him joining Chelsea.”

Poyet has however advised Chelsea to make a move for Ousmane Dembele, who is available as a free agent.

“Chelsea should prioritise Dembele but the club will be having doubts about his fitness. Barcelona paid a lot of money for him and didn’t use him as much as expected,” said Poyet.

“We all know what he can do and how important he could be, but there’s a question mark around him.”
