Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at a report from the Express with intrigue – with the publication suggesting that Chelsea are closing in on a deal for PSG star Ezequiel Lavezzi.
The media outlet cites ‘Premium Sport’ in the report, with the outlet claiming that Chelsea officials are set to meet with the Argentinian winger on Thursday to discuss terms – and this has got out resident Blues fans deliberating here in the Tavern!
Our landlord feels that at the age of 30, Lavezzi is not the player he once was, and feels that Chelsea should be looking for players who are in the peak of their careers, rather than ones that are reaching the latter stages.
Lavezzi, 30, is out of contract at the Ligue 1 club in the summer, and it seems that Chelsea are keen on luring the player to Stamford Bridge, and give him his first taste of Premier League football.
A very passionate contingent of Blues fans over by the jukebox here in the Tavern agree with the words of the landlord, and feel that the club need to be looking at signing players who are clearly in the prime of their careers!
Chelsea fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Lavezzi at your club? Is he past it? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
