Paul Merson has lambasted Chelsea's decision to allow experienced winger Willian to leave the club and join rivals Arsenal on a free transfer this summer.

Merson says Chelsea have taken an unnecessary risk by not stopping Willian from walking away - and also insists Frank Lampard is now under pressure to deliver after a remarkable spending spree.



Chelsea were keen to keep Willian and thrash out an extension, but the 32-year-old had demanded a three-year deal.



'In Willian, you have got someone there who is ready-made.

I like who they have signed, but they cost a lot of money, and their wages are probably the same as Willian.

Willian won two Premier League trophies, an FA Cup, a Carabao Cup and the Europa League in west London before making the controversial move across the capital.

Having sensationally splashed the cash to overhaul his ranks, Merson says that Chelsea's patience with Lampard may rapidly wear thin if he is unable to secure silverware soon.
