Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are praying they can overcome Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow and continue their mini-revival, whilst discussing a tasty piece of gossip that’s emerged in recent days.
The Daily Express states that Chelsea are preparing a huge £30m swoop for Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira, as they look to spark life into what has been a difficult campaign thus far.
Chelsea have lost seven Premier League games already this season and face a huge task securing a top-four finish at the end of the campaign, whilst their Champions League hopes hinder on a crucial final game that will decide whether they achieve top-spot in their group.
A huge reason for Chelsea’s decline this season has been their woes in attack, which would be boosted by the arrival of 25-year-old Teixeira; who boosts a staggering record of 23-goals in 23 matches for Shakhtar so far this season.
Chelsea fans at the jukebox believe the Brazilian would be a stellar addition and he would quickly settle into life at Stamford Bridge, with a wealth of his compatriots already in West London.
Blues fans, would Teixeira be the signing to save your season? Let us know in the comments below!
