Metro have Chelsea fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Blues are ready to use Filipe Luis as bait to sign Atletico Madrid star Koke.
The world class midfielder is not just a rising star these days, he is a fully blown hero and Atleti manager Diego Simeone is determined to keep him at the club – but with Saul Niguez rising to the first team with some gusto, not to mention the fact that they are desperate for a left back and know Filipe Luis can do a stellar job, a deal could well be on the cards.
As one of our punters notes, you have to imagine that Chelsea would be willing to part with Brazilian Luis given he has barley featured this season – but quite if they need Koke given they have Cesc Fabregas remains to be seen.
Chelsea fans. Are you excited at the prospect of having Koke? Would he be able to pick up the slack when Cesc goes missing during the second half of the season? Let us know your thoughts below.
