Bent considers £40m player to be a better signing than Caicedo and Enzo

According to football pundit Darren Bent, one £40m signing by Chelsea was a ‘bargain’. Chelsea have spent big in the previous summer transfer windows by signing Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez. Both these players costed the blues around £100 million. Caicedo and Fernandez are both midfielders for Chelsea. Ever since they arrived at the Stamford Bridge, there have been patches of brilliance from both the players. However, they have failed to perform consistently and failing to live up to their hefty price tags. Although, one certain midfielder who came to Chelsea for a much smaller price has been the best amongst the three. Cole Palmer is the best transfer deal Chelsea made for a midfielder in quite some time. He has scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists for the Blues since he joined in the summer. Despite being young, he has the best stats of a midfielder in Chelsea.

Darren Bent on Cole Palmer and his signing

The pundit said on talkSPORT,

“See that’s a bargain, that. He has been better than them (Caicedo and Fernandez). 
“Cole Palmer, probably out them three, he can go ‘Do you know what? I’ve done everything I can’.”

And Bent is not wrong on comparing and praising the youngster. Chelsea have been struggling very bad this season. They are only at the 11th position in the league. With 11 wins in 27 games. And the only player which has performed consistently in the midfield is the former Man City starlet Cole Palmer. Palmer arrived from Man City in the summer, and was not expected to be a regular starter right away. But his performances against his former club and some other crucial matches saving Chelsea, made him a star instantly. Cole Palmer deserves every bit of attention he’s getting this season.
