The Chelsea supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with their team’s form since the arrival of Guus Hiddink but they are casting an eye towards next season when it looks as though Italy coach Antonio Conte, will be the club’s new manager.
Talk among the group of Blues supporters has turned towards which players might arrive at Stamford Bridge, in the wake of Conte’s arrival at the club.
One ardent supporter is popping his favourite tracks on the Tavern’s jukebox when he spots an article via the Metro that claims Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain could be a primary target for the club, once Conte arrives.
The article suggests that, according to Italian outlet transfermarketweb.com, Conte is hoping to entice the striker to the Premier League.
One Chelsea fan is playing pool with his pals in the Tavern and he thinks Higuain would be a superb signing and could go on to become one the all-time Chelsea greats should he sign for the club.
Chelsea fans… Is Higuain the man to bring back silverware to the Bridge? Who else should Conte pursue?
