Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been alerted to reports that indicate Jose Mourinho was on a scouting mission during the international break, which has sparked a big discussion over by the pool tables.
The Blues have endured a horrific start to the Premier League season as they sit in 16th spot with just eight points from the opening eight matches, which leaves the defending champions likely out of the title race already.
With new faces needing to be recruited in January, the Independent states that Mourinho was watching Ukraine tackle Spain last night for the sole purpose of scouting Dynamo Kiev ace Andriy Yarmolenko.
25-year-old Yarmolenko has attracted vast interest across Europe following his explosive start to the season, where he has scored eight goals in his opening 13 matches; whilst he scored 19 goals from midfield last term.
Our Chelsea regulars believe Yarmolenko would be a great addition as their not thrilled with Pedro’s start at Stamford Bridge, whilst Eden Hazard is suffering from a severe lack of form.
Chelsea fans, would Yarmolenko be a decent purchase? Let us know in the comments below!
