The Chelsea situation this summer is a strange one, with the future of manager Antonio Conte remaining unsure and the club yet to make any summer signings.
The Blues fans here in the Tavern will be keen to see the club begin to start acting quickly in order to ensure their club does not fall behind in the race for the title once again, with the likes of United and City already making moves this summer.
There’s plenty of positions the Blues could do with adding some quality to this summer, and one positon our landlord thinks might need a new face in is in between the sticks, with Thibaut Courtois still looking unsure on if he will remain at the Bridge at the end of the summer.
Our landlord thinks there is a ready made replacement already in the Premier League however in the form of Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmiechel, who is valued at a cool £10m by Transfermarkt.
The Dane has been impressive for his country so far in the World Cup, winning plaudits as he has helped guide his country into the knockout stages and a meeting with Croatia.
Into his 30s now, the time to go and play for a club who will consistently challenge for the top four might not come along again, and if a move to Chelsea could be orchestrated, then Schmeichel would have to seize the opportunity.
Chelsea fans, what do you think? Would this be a good signing? Let us know in the comments!
