Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are questioning if this is the right man to take their squad to the next level after talkSPORT revealed the Blues are set to offer £43 million for Atletico Madrid Koke.
People believe there are still some gaps to fill in Jose Mourinho’s side despite them topping the Premier League by 10 points.
The Blues team has looked complete from day one in this campaign but Mourinho will know more than anybody that they must strengthen their team and move with times.
And it is no secret that Mourinho is keen on players from La Liga which makes it no surprise he is keen on Atletico’s Spaniard.
Koke came through ranks at the current La Liga champions’ and has since established himself as a regular at the Vicente Calderon.
The 23-year-old recently signed a new five year deal which is why the Blues understand they will have to pay over the odds for their man.
Chelsea’s technical director Michael Emenalo travelled to Spain to monitor the midfielder in Atleti’s 2-1 defeat to Deportivo.
Chelsea fans. Do you think Koke would be the best person for the club? If not who else would you spend £43m on? Let us know your thoughts below!
