'Best team' - Saul Niguez sends Liverpool Premier League title warning after completing Chelsea transfer

Saul Niguez has sent a title warning to Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United after completing a move to Chelsea earlier this week.

The London club were one of the busier teams on deadline day and secured a season-long loan move for the Atletico Madrid midfielder.

The 26-year-old was the topic of transfer speculation throughout the summer and was heavily linked with moves to both Anfield and Old Trafford, but it was Chelsea that landed the player in the closing hours of the window.

Liverpool were rumoured to be interested in Niguez following the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, but the club opted against replacing the Dutch international before Tuesday’s deadline.

In his first interview with Chelsea’s official website, Niguez said: “I am so happy to be here. It was a great opportunity for myself and for my career.

“Since I was a child I only had two goals – make history at Atletico or play in the Premier League. Not only because of the league itself, but because of its culture and the language.”

Thomas Tuchel’s side are set to rival the Reds, as well as both Manchester clubs, for the league title this season and the Spain international believes he’s at the right club to finish top of the table at the end of the campaign.

He continued: “When a team wins the Champions League, you already know how strong they are – but when you actually face them, you realise how hard they work.

“I want to win the Premier League and I think I am in the best team to do it.”

Niguez wasn’t Chelsea’s only bit of business this summer, as he followed the arrival of former United and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Jurgen Klopp’s side faced Chelsea last Saturday and the points were shared at Anfield in a 1-1 draw, despite the visitors going down to 10 men on the brink of half-time.

The Reds’ failure to capitalise in the second-half only amplified frustration from supporters regarding the lack of business on deadline day.

Liverpool made just one signing this summer in defender Ibrahima Konate and focus instead shifted to player retention as Jordan Henderson became the latest key player to sign a new deal with the club earlier this week.
