The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a very busy summer at Stamford Bridge…
The Blues are flying in the Premier League so far this season, but with recent results suggesting that teams are beginning to figure out Antonio Conte’s side – a number of significant changes will be needed going forward.
Add to this the prospect of Champions League footballing returning to Stamford Bridge next season, and the limited squad depth on offer to Conte begins to become a serious issue for the Blues in the Transfer Tavern.
A few reinforcements are expected in the summer, then, and with the Blues likely seeking to retain their Premier League title – a few big name additions might be required.
One of those players could be Bernardo Silva, with the Times reporting that Chelsea are keen on the attacking midfielder.
Chelsea have reportedly held initial talks over the proposed transfer, with Monaco holding out for around £68.4 million.
An offensive midfielder, Silva has impressed in Ligue 1 for Monaco this season, with the French side currently leading the race in the top flight.
Silva has bagged 6 goals and 5 assists so far this season.
