Caught Offside have a cracker of a story for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern today as it is claimed that Chelsea are considering a move for Fiorentina’s Adem Ljajic.
The playmaker is currently considering a move away from Serie A and Chelsea could provide him with the ideal outlet. The London club have just become ‘double Champions of Europe’ and are looking to spend big and improve their side as the summer and a new not so secret manager approaches in Jose Mourinho.
The Fiorentina player is only 21 years of age and is stalling on a new deal at the Stadio Artemi Franchi meaning that a deal could well be negotiated this summer so that neither player nor club lose out.
Ljajic has experienced several issues at the Viola, being attacked by former boss Delio Rossi yet now becoming a key part of the side netting eight times in 27 games this season meaning that Fiorentina are rather keen to keep hold of their star. Given that Montenegrin star Stevan Jovetic could well be set for a move to the Premier League, it could well mean that Ljajic sees this as the perfect time to make the move too.
Will Chelsea go for Ljajic even though they boast Mata, Oscar and Hazard? Rate this rumour below.
