Bonucci, Koulibaly, Keane, Romagnoli: Which defender should Chelsea sign?

The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern can’t make their mind up…

The punters in the Tavern rarely agree on anything, and this debate is certainly no different.

The Blues’ defensive crisis has been well documented this season, with Antonio Conte’s men leaking goals every single week. Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill are both woefully out of form, whilst John Terry’s injury woes continue to worsen.

As a result, to the surprise of nobody in the Tavern – Antonio Conte has been linked with a host of top central defenders in recent weeks; leaving the Chelsea fans undecided in who they would like to see arrive at Stamford Bridge.

Leonardo Bonucci is the most high-profile name, but his purported transfer fee and age has put some of the punters off.

Kalidou Koulibaly was a summer target, but Napoli refused to sell – could the Blues give him another shot?

Michael Keane was a surprise name touted with a move, and he would represent a good value, English alternative.

Alessio Romagnoli was linked over the summer too – and Conte is seemingly a fan of the Italian.

Four very good central defenders – but who should Conte prioritise?
