The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t so sure about this…
The Blues have been quiet when it comings to bringing in players so far this month, and the Chelsea fans in the pub were expecting Deadline Day to continue in that vein.
However, it would appear as though Antonio Conte has his eye on at least one new signing – with the Daily Mail reporting that Chelsea have asked about the availability of Inter Milan winger Jonathan Biabiany on loan.
Biabiany has hardly featured for Inter Milan this season, so Antonio Conte is, seemingly, looking to capitalise on that by improving his options going forward.
For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, though, the deal just doesn’t make sense. As it is, Willian can’t get in the team – and to add another winger to the mix wouldn’t make sense. What’s more, Ruben Loftus-Cheek would likely be relegated further down the pecking order, meaning that this deal is, in many ways, a no win situation for the Blues.
Nonetheless, a manager with Conte’s record is not to be questioned – and our landlord thinks that the deal could end up being a good one.
In 7 Serie A starts last season, Jonathan Biabiany bagged 1 goal and 2 assists.
