Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Transfer Tavern are unsure what to make of the news filtering in from Metro today, with the publication claiming Chelsea are leading the race to sign midfielder Kelechi Nwakali.
The 17-year-old midfielder is one of the biggest stars emerging from Nigeria, and it seems that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is keen on securing a deal for the talented midfielder.
Our resident landlord here in the Transfer Tavern knows little about Nwakali, but doesn’t see any harm in Chelsea luring some of the best talent from Nigeria to the club – however, the landlord is sceptical, as the player himself has admitted he would prefer a move to Arsenal.
A handful of Chelsea fans over by the jukebox here in the Transfer Tavern are deliberating this news, with them all agreeing they wouldn’t like to sign a player who would rather play for Arsenal!
A small contingent of Arsenal fans over in the corner of the Tavern simply don’t want to get involved in this debate, as they want to see the club sign an established striker in January, not some kid who has potential!
Chelsea/Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see this Nigerian sensation at your club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
