Metro seem to think that Chelsea are set to challenge another Premier League rival when it comes to their targets this summer.
Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are beginning to wonder if the Blues even scout players or just wait until their rivals express an interest in someone!
The latest target for Jose Mourinho seems to be Real Sociedad contract rebel and French international winger Antoine Griezmann who as our landlord quite rightly points out, has also been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers had been keen on bringing the French star to Anfield and was willing to pay in the region of £20 million to do so.
But now Chelsea and Mourinho are involved, one of our punters notes that a bidding war could be on the cards and we know that the Blues take no prisoners when it comes to landing their man – just ask Tottenham and Willian!
One of our Blues fans questions just how many wingers the club plan on buying and according to this rumour, it seems at least one more!
Liverpool fans. How impressed with Griezmann have you been? Would you pay a chunk of the Suarez money to land him or would you let Chelsea buy yet another bench warmer? Let us know your thoughts below.
