The punters, hoping the Blues will end their poor run of form, were thrilled to see the London Evening Standard report their clubs interest in a £29m move for Porto midfielder Ruben Nueves.
18-year-old Nueves is highly-rated in European football and Chelsea fans are eager to see this deal completed as swiftly as possible, although they will have to wait as it’s stated the move will take place next summer.
Chelsea have been tracking the teenager for some time, as have Real Madrid and Barcelona, but the club hope their links with the Portuguese club can help them complete the deal.
However, the report identifies Juventus’ Paul Pogba as their prime target although at half the price Neueves is a much cheaper alternative.
Chelsea fans, should you end your Pogba interest in order to focus on Ruben Nueves? Let us know below in the comments!
