The Chelsea supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are hopeful that boss Antonio Conte can mastermind yet another jaunt at the Premier League title this season, following the Italian’s superb maiden campaign managing in the top flight of English football.
The former Italy head coach has been pretty vocal in his attempt to persuade the board to sign more players for his squad before the window closes and it looks set to be an exciting few days for the Blues faithful here in the Tavern.
One Chelsea supporter is flicking through the day’s papers and he spots an article in The Sun that confirms that the champions will seek to hold talks with Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.
Conte is keen to build a core of English talent at Stamford Bridge and the England international looks set to be on his way to the club in a deal which could hit £30 million.
Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has grown disgruntled with Barkley’s unwillingness to pen a new deal with his current club and after a summer spending spree he could now be ready to finally part with the 23-year-old.
A couple of Chelsea supporters are enjoying an early morning pint here in the Tavern and they are in agreement that Barkley would represent a pretty decent piece of business for the club.
The Landlord’s Verdict
Barkley is undoubtedly a great talent but whether he can become a good player for a top English side remains to be seen.
He will get the chance to play for the champions of English football at Stamford Bridge and that could be just the tonic that the midfielder needs to massage his ego and revive his flailing career.
