Chelsea fans enjoying a beer and burger here in the Transfer Tavern have been alerted to the news that is being banded round the pub from TuttoMercatoWeb – with the publication suggesting that the Blues are keeping tabs on Porto’s attacking midfielder Yacine Brahimi.
The 25-year-old is impressing many punters here in the Tavern, and it seems that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is also fan, and is keen on luring the Algerian to Stamford Bridge in January.
Now, as we all know Chelsea have had a poor start to their Premier League campaign, and our landlord feels that Brahimi is not the type of player that the club should be gunning for, and instead should be looking to sign a new centre-back!
Our resident Chelsea punters here in the Tavern feel that the club already have enough attacking midfielders, and another one is just not needed.
Paul, a die-hard Chelsea fan, over by the billiards table, had his say on the matter: “We need John Stones, the kid is class, I don’t want this Brahimi fella!”
Chelsea fans…. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Brahimi at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
