Chelsea in pole position over Arsenal in race to sign gifted international defender

mourinho0000Chelsea supporting punters are enjoying some banter with Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern after reading the news from the Express – with the publication claiming that Chelsea are leading Arsenal in the race to sign Benfica defender Nelson Semedo.

Semedo, 22, has excelled for Benfica this season and it is no surprise to see some of England’s biggest clubs keep tabs on him.

Our resident Chelsea fans have been slamming Branislav Ivanovic every single weekend here in the Transfer Tavern, so are welcoming the news of the Blues’ interest in right-back Nelson Semedo.

The player has made an appearance for the Portugal national team, and he looks set to become a regular fixture in their side – and will be hoping to be a consistent starter for the Euro 2016 tournament in France next year.

Our regular Gooners enjoying a pie and pint here in the Tavern aren’t too bothered about this news, as they already have an extremely talented right-back, in the form of Hector Bellerin!

Chelsea/Arsenal fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Nelson Semedo at your club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
