Former Chelsea star Frank Leboeuf has slammed Chelsea for not signing Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and James Ward-Prowse before his move from Southampton to West Ham.

Leboeuf believes both players would have hit the ground running at Chelsea immediately because they know the league.

Leboeuf told ESPN: “Why didn’t Chelsea think about players like James Ward-Prowse or Aleksandar Mitrovic?

“I don’t know, they’re not big-time players, but they don’t cost £100million and they are going to serve you immediately because they know the league.”
