Metro have Chelsea fans looking up here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Blues could well make a move for Alex Song.
The midfielder has of course spent the season on loan at West Ham United after being told he was surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou, and it seems that he is now set for a significant upgrade, with Chelsea and Jose Mourinho hot on his trail – and as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger at the bar, that is a huge transfer for Song.
We also think it will spell the end for one of John Obi Mikel or Ramires at the club – with our money on Mikel finally being pushed out the door by the Blues.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Song is the perfect midfield man for you? Is the fact he’s home-grown a massive bonus? Let us know your thoughts below.
