Chelsea eye Spanish international as summer transfer replacement

MorenoIt’s been another busy Saturday in the Football Transfer Tavern but already attention has turned to the title decider taking place on Sunday.

Chelsea take on Liverpool in a game they must achieve victory in to have any chance of winning the Premier League and Blues fans are feeling apprehensive ahead of the match.

For now though, they have been distracted by reports for MirrorFootball who suggest that Jose Mourinho wants to sign Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno in a £15 million deal.

Mourinho has outlined the 21-year-old as a suitable replacement for Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge, with the England international expected to leave in the summer.

Cesar Azpilicueta has taken on the first choice left back role for Mourinho this term but he would rather be playing in his preferred right hand side position.

Southampton’s Luke Shaw had been an option for the Blues but they have been put off by the £30 million asking price for the 18-year-old, who is likely to join Manchester United instead.

Moreno is, therefore, seen as cheaper option
