Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are not sure what to make of the news from the Express (via Corrierie cello Sport) with the media outlet suggesting that Chelsea will battle Liverpool to the signing of Marseille defender Nicolas Nkoulou in January.
The 25-year-old currently plies his trade for Ligue 1 outfit Marseille, and has thoroughly impressed our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern when he’s been playing on the big screen in the pub.
It is no secret that Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea need a serious overhaul in the January transfer window, after an abysmal Premier League campaign that has seen them dabble with the Premier League relegation zone – and it seems that the Blues will target a move for Nkoulou, to help rejuvenate the beleaguered defence.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have been relatively inconsistent this season, and our Reds fans here in the Tavern admit they would love to see Nkoulou at Anfield, and feel at the age of 25, he will be reaching the prime stages of his playing career!
Chelsea and Liverpool fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Nkoulou at your club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
