Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for something to go right this month, after seeing transfers fall apart and their campaign on the field continuing to suffer.
There could be cause for celebration though, as The Sun suggests Chelsea are one of the sides keeping tabs on Real Madrid defender Nacho; who’s keen on an exit to improve his chances of making Spain’s European Championship squad.
Chelsea’s leaky defence has been a huge point in their downfall this season, with the Blues conceding 34 goals in 22 matches; giving them one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League.
Nacho could be a contender to shore up their defensive ranks, though competition for his signature is rife as Italian title-chasers Roma reportedly tabled an offer for the Spaniard last week ahead of Ashley Cole’s departure.
Real Madrid themselves may not be willing to sell as a FIFA imposed transfer ban gives them just the remainder of this window to complete transfer activity, with Real Madrid then unable to register new players until the summer of 2017.
Our landlord believes Nacho would be a good candidate to improve the defence and has encouraged them to make a move.
Chelsea fans, would Nacho improve your back-line? Let us know in the comments below!
