Chelsea fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that the Blues are currently the favourites to land Charlie Austin.
The forward looks set to leave Queens Park Rangers after it became clear he was not willing to play in the Championship and with a host of Premier League sides on the hunt for another forward, it seems Austin could well be the man for Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea may be bringing in Radamel Falcao, but also want another forward and with Loic Remy being heavily linked to Crystal Palace, we think Austin could be a good replacement for the forward – and probably manage to be fit and available for more games to boot.
Chelsea fans. Is Austin someone you think would make a huge difference to the squad next season? Would he be a better back up than Falcao or Remy? Let us know your thoughts below.
