The Telegraph have managed to get Chelsea fans over to the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Blues are ready to increase their bid for Asmir Begovic to £8 million.
The club are looking for a top class replacement for Petr Cech, and as our punters note, it is hard to find a class player who is willing to sit on the bench for the majority of the season, yet it seems Jose Mourinho has found his man with the Stoke City stopper.
We think £8 million is small change to a club like Chelsea, not to mention the fact that the Blues know how vital it is to have to top notch keepers given the risk of injury and suspension when fighting for titles on all four major fronts.
Chelsea fans. How much money will it take for you to land Begovic? Will he be happy sat on the bench? Let us know your thoughts below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
