Not really looking like they were going to sign anybody then forced back into the market after an uncharacteristic poor start to the Premier League season, our Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are also witnessing a rather hectic deadline day to boot.
Having signed the lesser known Senegalese international Papy Djilobodji from Nantes this morning as a reluctant alternative to Everton’s John Stones, in fairness this has done little to get our Blues fans off their barstools and to be honest, their next signing of the day in Reading’s Michael Hector is similarly not drawing much adoration.
In moves which are being mooted as more resemblant of Arsenal, our Chelsea fans are thanking the lord that at least their club landed Pedro from Barcelona with the Spanish international expected to enjoy a great impact in West London and after all, he scored and provided an assist on his competitive debut.
But the question is, will Chelsea leave it there?
Given the failings from the likes of Branislav Ivanovic, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa thus far this campaign, our resident Chelsea fans would rather Roman Abramovich spent, spent, spent in the final hours of the window, especially on somebody with that X-factor such as Paul Pogba.
With just hours remaining however, only time will tell whether Blues fans are delivered their wish. Keeping along these lines on deadline day, we’ve devised a list of five players who could yet switch to Stamford Bridge in the final movements of the summer transfer window.
