Chelsea are reportedly readying a surprise move for in-demand attacker

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are always eager for the side to sign the next big thing, and it would appear as if the Blues are looking towards Scotland for their next young target…

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are considering a move for Celtic wonderkid Michael Johnston.

Johnston, who has yet to make a senior appearance for the club, has apparently impressed during his tenure whilst involved in the Celtic developmental system – seemingly catching the attention of Chelsea.

Of course, should Johnston make the move, he would join a long line of talented youngsters to make the move to Stamford Bridge – with Michael Emanalo and co’s aggressive approach to bringing in young players proving successful for the Blues.

Our landlord, though, thinks that Johnston will have to question whether this is the best move for his career. Over the years, dozens of players have moved to Chelsea and had limited success – so perhaps a stay in Scotland would best benefit his career.

Chelsea fans – thoughts?
