Metro have made Chelsea fans look up with notable interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that the Blues could well be about to sign another forward in January.
This time Jose Mourinho and his men have been linked with HNK Rijeka’s Andrej Kramaric who has been likened to legendary AC Milan forward Filippo Inzaghi – and that cannot be a bad thing according to our regulars!
The Blues are currently flying high in the Premier League with the likes of Diego Costa banging in the goals on a regular basis.
However, as our landlord notes over a pint, having a young forward in the pipeline is never a bad thing!
In fact, when you look at Chelsea and their current youth side, the likes of Patrick Bamford and Isaiah Brown are showing that the Blues not only have a very bright immediate future but that their youth sides bode well for the long-term as well.
This will however be a huge blow to Tottenham Hotspur who had been keen on the player and as our landlord notes, favourites to sign him before Chelsea and Mourinho swooped.
Chelsea fans. Is this a good move for the club to be making? Do you need another forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
