Our resident Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are in jolly spirits, with the club currently sitting nicely at the top of the Premier League table.
Antonio Conte is doing a sensational job in west London and the punters here in the Tavern are tipping the Blues to go all the way and win the title come May.
As ever here in the Transfer Tavern, talk quickly turns to transfer news and gossip and the latest line coming into the pub via Sky Sports News is that Chelsea have made an approach to Middlesbrough for winger Adama Traore.
This news has certainly caught the Blues faithful off guard, with many fans here in the Tavern shocked that Conte would move for this Boro man.
The 20-year-old has shown flashes of brilliance for Aitor Karanka’s side this season since arriving from Aston Villa in the summer, but it is certainly a shock to see a team of Chelsea’s calibre come in for the young winger.
Our landlord thinks that the former Barcelona wideman is an excellent talent and has all the attributes and credentials to become a global superstar, so can see the logic behind this particular transfer rumour.
Chelsea fans…. Would you like to see Adama at Chelsea? Where would he fit in? Let us know below!
