The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t know what to make of reports linking Celtic shot-stopper Craig Gordon with a move to Stamford Bridge…
After all, with the trio of Thibaut Courtois, Asmir Begovic and Eduardo at Stamford Bridge – Antonio Conte would struggle to improve on his options between the sticks.
Thibaut Courtois is, of course, Conte’s first choice – though an injury to him would mean a starting berth for Asmir Begovic – meaning that strength is absolutely vital in the position.
However, with reports linking Asmir Begovic with a move to Bournemouth, Conte’s hand could be forced – with a quality backup option an absolute necessity for the Italian boss.
