On the very last day of the transfer window, Manchester United has just finalized the acquisition of a Premier League striker who has scored 15 goals and provided 10 assists so far this season. This player is sometimes compared to Rashford. It is widely believed by fans that he is better and stronger than Rashford.

Former Chelsea player Melchiot emphasized the goal-scoring prowess of England international Watkins, highlighting his value to top-tier clubs.


Watkins’ impressive performance this season, contributing 15 goals and 10 assists for Aston Villa, has drawn attention. Despite Manchester United’s acquisition of talented teenager Rasmus Hojlund, Melchiot suggests they could benefit from Watkins’ Premier League experience.


Speaking exclusively with Ladbrokes Fanzone, Melchiot described signing Watkins as a “no-brainer” for clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal, or Chelsea. He stressed the importance of having a consistent goal scorer in each team.


Melchiot countered the tendency of elite teams to prioritize instant impact, arguing that Watkins’ ability to consistently find the back of the net could fulfill the needs of these clubs.


  • Overall, Melchiot’s perspective challenges the notion that immediate impact is the sole criterion for player recruitment, underscoring Watkins’ potential influence on top-tier teams.
