There is slight surprise here at the Football Transfer Tavern as it has been claimed by the Daily Mail that Chelsea may make a shock swoop for Everton player Leighton Baines.
The London club are of course in possession of one of the best full backs in the world in Ashley Cole and after completing a U-turn and allowing Cole to stay, offering him a new contract, it is surprising that the club are also after 28-year-old Baines.
It has been rumoured in the past that the player may one day make the move to Manchester United but Chelsea are willing to pounce first and would even be open to playing the left back up the field in front of Cole.
Given the fact that David Moyes has also been linked with Chelsea, it comes as a given to our more shrewd punters that moves for Baines and Fellaini could also follow. Of course managers like to bring their star players with them when they make a move to another club and the full back has certainly been one of those for Moyes during his time at the Toffees.
