There is something for Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern to smile about according to the Daily Express and it seems that Jose Mourinho is ready to make another signing.
The Blues boss is reportedly closing in on a £18 million move for Ezequiel Lavezzi who currently plays his trade for Paris Saint-Germain and is looking for a move.
Now as one of our punters notes, at the start of the summer, we may have linked the Blues with Edinson Cavani.
However, after a shaky start to the World Cup not to mention the fact that Lavezzi was a huge problem for Chelsea in their clashes last season, we think a move for the latter is far more likely.
Mourinho has already unveiled Cesc Fabregas and is preparing to get Diego Costa added to his squad.
However, as our landlord reminds us over by the pool table, Mourinho still wants to land another forward and sees Lavezzi’s pace and indeed ability to play on the wing or as an out and out forward one of the attributes he is looking for.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Lavezzi is a player you should be chasing? Is £18 million a steal for a player like Lavezzi? Let us know your thoughts below.
