Why the signing of Sterling by Chelsea will improve Chelsea attackers

Raheem Sterling, a Manchester City and England winger, is expected to join Chelsea in the next few days, according to rumours that Chelsea and Manchester City have struck a deal for Sterling's transfer.

Sterling's poor performances at Manchester City prompted Pep Guardiola to bench him in some games, and as a result, he was not a consistent starter for City last season. Despite this, some Chelsea fans may not be pleased with this transfer.

In fact, Sterling's arrival at Chelsea will only serve to amplify the attacking prowess already possessed by other members of the team.

Reason:

Raheem Sterling is a player who excels at setting up other players for several scoring opportunities: None of Chelsea's attacking players can claim to have performed better than Raheem Sterling last season, as Sterling was directly involved in more Manchester City goals than any of Chelsea's attacking players were last season. As a result of Sterling's excellent dribbling and energy, Chelsea's attacking frontline will benefit from several chances for the likes of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
