Chelsea fans cannot believe their eyes here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that the Blues are considering a massive bid for West Ham United’s Enner Valencia.
Jose Mourinho may have claimed that he wanted to have a quiet transfer window but it seems that the Blues boss has reconsidered his stance and will now offer West Ham United £21 million for the Ecuadorian international.
As one of our punters notes over by the pool table, that is too much money to turn down, especially for a club like West Ham.
We think that Mourinho panicked after the FA Cup loss to Bradford City and is now trying to add some more competition to his forward line.
The Blues boss is of course conscious of the fact he will be without main man Diego Costa for the next three matches and could well see that happen again before the end of the season if the forward does not temper some of his aggression, hence the bid for Valencia.
Chelsea fans. What do you make of today’s links with Enner Valencia? Would a move for the West Ham man be knee-jerk in every sense? Let us know your thoughts below.
