The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Antonio Conte will begin his summer spending sooner, rather than later…
Chelsea have impressed this season, but for the punters in the pub, the real challenge for Conte will come in his seemingly inevitable task of retaining the Premier League title next season.
For that to be a realistic goal, a few major signings are needed this summer – and it would appear as if the Blues are closing in on their first.
According to Tutto Mercato Web, Chelsea have agreed a €40 million deal for Monaco star Tiemoué Bakayoko, with the offer of a five-year contract also on the table for the midfielder.
This news has left the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern ordering another drink, with Bakayoko often touted as the perfect signing in the pub.
Strong, agile and a real midfield commander, Bakayoko would likely come straight into the Chelsea team alongside N’Golo Kante, and our landlord thinks that he would make the Blues’ midfield unstoppable.
Would he be a good signing?
