The Daily Mail have managed to get Chelsea fans frowning here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the Blues have seen an approach for Marquinhos turned down.
Now as one of our punters notes, things seem to be getting towards the stage of a panic buy for Jose Mourinho and the Blues, with their defence looking awful, and bids and approaches for several players being turned down.
After the Blues spent the majority of the transfer window chasing after John Stones, they seem to have hit a brick wall when it comes to bringing in a centre back, and after shipping more goals in four games than they usually do in a season, Jose Mourinho is understandably keen to shake things up – but it seems he might have to wait until January to do so.
Chelsea fans. Do you think you will manage to bring in a defender who is top draw before the window closes? Let us know your thoughts below!
