Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from Gazzetta dello Sport with interest – as the publication states that Chelsea are considering a shock move for former Blackburn Rovers striker Nikola Kalinic.
The 27-year-old striker enjoyed a two year stint at the Lancashire club, where he amassed seven goals from 44 appearances – and it seems that he could potentially be set for a shock move back to England, with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.
The forward currently plies his trade in Italy with Serie A outfit Fiorentina, and our landlord cannot believe this transfer rumour, and says that Mourinho will surely target a striker of a much higher calibre than Kalinic!
Our resident Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are reminiscing about Kalinic, with them all agreeing he wasn’t that special during his time at Blackburn, and cannot imagine him excelling at Stamford Bridge!
A number of rascal transfer rumours regarding Chelsea have been filtering into the Tavern today, with the Blues also linked with a move for ex-Arsenal, Man City and Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor!
