GRAEME SOUNESS says Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has had his “trousers taken down” over the transfers of £107million Enzo Fernandez and Co.
The Blues have spent north of £600million since the American’s takeover last year.
World Cup winning midfielder Fernandaz was the cherry on top on deadline day last month, joining for a British record transfer fee.
But despite Chelsea splashing the cash, Graham Potter’s men have just one win in their last six Premier League games.
They played out a goalless draw against West London rivals Fulham in their last outing – a game which saw £107m Fernandez make his debut.
Liverpool legend and football pundit, Souness, is far from impressed by the Blues’ ownership.
Writing for the Daily Mail, Souness fumed: “Who on earth is advising Todd Boehly at Chelsea?
“He might be an American investor with extremely deep pockets who fancies his chances as a Premier League high roller, but who is actually providing intelligence and assessment on the value of the players he is buying?
“When it comes to Fernandez, Chelsea have paid a premium on top of a premium on top of a premium.
“A premium because it is the Premier League calling.
“A premium because it is Chelsea. A premium because they want this player now.
