Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news filtering in from both Foot Mercato (via Metro) and Winner Sports – with all the media outlets suggesting that Chelsea are readying a major move for Valencia defender Aymen Abdennour.
Winner Sports suggests that the Blues are set to splash in excess of £20 million for the 26-year-old centre-back, with the Blues ultimately seeing the Valencia star as a long-term replacement for John Terry.
Our resident Chelsea fans enjoying a pie and pint here in the Transfer Tavern aren’t really too sure what to make of this news, with them all agreeing that the defender can’t be that good given how bad the La Liga side are doing at the moment!
However, our landlord has made the Chelsea punters here in the Tavern a little happier, with him admitting that Abdennour is a very accomplished defender, and that he would thrive in the top-flight of English football,
Chelsea have been simply awful this season, and have been lying very close to the relegation zone in the division for some time now, with the Chelsea fans here just wanting to see some change in the squad!
Chelsea fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see this Valencia defender at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
