Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern saw a dramatic weekend with a 2-2 draw against West Ham, which further identified the need for numerous changes this summer in the eyes of many supporters.
Fortunately, it seems the west London side share the same beliefs and a new name has cropped up on the Chelsea shortlist.
The Sun state Chelsea are readying a move for Athletic Bilbao’s combative central-midfielder Oscar De Marcos, as they see the Spaniard as the perfect replacement for Ramires- who moved to China in January.
Antonio Conte is set to come into Stamford Bridge this summer and complete a major rebuild with Chelsea, increasing their competitiveness after a poor season, and officials have been closely watching De Marcos recently.
De Marcos’ high-energy approach to the game and his ability to control the midfield appeals to Chelsea, as these are traits which could make him a Premier League star, and his arrival would strengthen the midfield ranks that took a hit after Ramires mid-season departure.
Our landlord has seen a lot of De Marcos in recent years and feels he could be exactly what Chelsea need, as long as he’s utilised correctly.
Chelsea fans, would De Marcos be a good addition to your midfield? Let us know in the comments below!
