Chelsea chasing Turkish international in £13m summer swoop

Jose Mourinho Chelsea fans are looking rather interested here in the Football Transfer Tavern as our Spanish expert relays the latest claim from AS.

The publication seem to think that the Blues are readying a bid for Hakan Calhanoglu, who is a highly rated attacking midfielder, currently plying his trade for Bundesliga side Hamburg.

A tricky player, capable of scoring a wonder goal or two, the Turkish star is not only attracting interest from Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, but also La Liga side Atletico Madrid.

As one of our punters notes, a couple of seasons ago, it would have been an easy choice, but now given how well Diego Simeone’s men are doing, the player actually has something to think about and a choice to make.

The Turkish international is only 20 years of age, and as our landlord notes whilst moving over to the pool table, he is young enough to develop with a team and may well need a ‘daddy’ in order to hatch in the best possible way.

This is something we know Jose Mourinho is all too familiar with doing this season.
