Incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is stepping up his search for new recruits and according to ELF Voetbal Magazine via The Sun, the Blues are hopeful of signing Ajax midfielder Riechedly Bazoer during the summer.
The highly-rated performer has attracted the interest of some of European football’s top clubs of late but Chelsea are extremely hopeful that they can win the race for the player’s signature.
Some midfield muscle will be at the very top of the agenda for Conte when he arrives at Stamford Bridge, with Bazoer comfortable in a number of midfield roles.
Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are unsure whether the club can still attract the world’s top players, with the club set to sit out of European competition next season, which will make signing the best players all the more difficult.
One Blues die-hard is sat in the Tavern with a pint of the landlord’s real ale and he thinks that Bazoer would be a great addition to the squad and hopes that he won’t be the last new recruit.
Chelsea fans, what do you know about Bazoer? Will he sign for the club with them not being in Europe?
