John Barnes praises a world-class Tottenham transfer target who would be fantastic for the club ...

Tottenham''s Raheem Sterling, a world-class player, has been labelled by John Barnes as a fantastic signing for Chelsea.

Both Tottenham and Chelsea have put their horns on the way to seek and lure the Manchester City star to the capital this summer, but will he go to north London or to the west?

Before Romelu Lukakus'' impressive second season at Chelsea comes to an end, he leaves another door open for Thomas Tuchel to add and correct his wacky and defying forward line.

Sterling enters the market right from that perspective, but things are a little different about Hotspur Way, where Golden Boot winner Heung-Min Son is causing havoc from the left channel.

Even if the multiple Premier League winner wanted to play a key role, he couldnt because his England captain, Harry Kane, is the team''s leading number nine in Tottenham.

The following is what Liverpool legend Barnes told about Sterling''s future, and how it''s possible that he would leave the Etihad.

According to Barnes, the king''s opinion is that with the additions of new players, he will not be a regular player, although he is a brilliant world-class player, which he should be (playing on a regular basis).

If he feels at Chelsea, then he might play more regularly, and this would be a great move for him, as well as for Chelsea.

If you think about the price they must pay, then you should know about Raheem''s age and the quality. It will be a fantastic signing for them, but Raheem will make it.


Sterling has won everything he could in Man City colours, but has been somewhat faltered not only during the past 12 months, but during the previous two years.

The 27-year-old has scored 31 goals in all competitions from the previous two campaigns, but managed that feat alone three times last year.

That''s just the high bar bar that former Liverpool player has set, and with both Chelsea and Spurs in the Champions League, they''d also give him the chance to play against the elite.

Then the finger will point towards the trophy cabinet, and while Antonio Conte is in the Spurs'' slump, he has plenty of chances of winning a trophy at Stamford Bridge.
