Things just seem to be getting better and better for Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern and it seems that the Blues are set to land one of the most coveted young stars in football if Metro are to be believed.
The publication have claimed that despite both Liverpool and Arsenal also being keen on PSV Eindhoven ace Zakaria Bakkali, the Blues are set to sign the starlet – and beat their rivals to a transfer target once again.
Now as our regulars note, we would not trust Arsene Wenger to sign anyone and when it comes to Liverpool, unless a top player wants to be sat on the bench when they face their biggest games, that is a no go area as well.
Jose Mourinho is one of the smoothest operators in the transfer window and we certainly think that the Belgian starlet would be a superb signing for the West London club – particularly as he will be available on a free come next summer, given he is refusing to sign a new deal with the Eredivisie club.
Chelsea fans. Do you even need Bakkali or is this another player that would arrive simply to be sent out on loan right away? Let us know your thoughts below.
