Chelsea have picked up form of late and managed to sneak a 1-0 win over Bournemouth this weekend to keep up their push for a challenge at the top of the Premier League.
The Blues have managed to get their heads down and pick up results despite a turbulent start to the season and a summer transfer window which didn’t yield the results what Antonio Conte obviously wanted.
Our landlord here in the Tavern has been impressed with Chelsea though in the main, but he still thinks the club should go out and make a huge splash in the transfer market to send a message to the rest of the Premier League and Europe that they mean business.
One player he thinks would tick all the boxes and come at a hefty price is current Real Madrid star and Spanish wonderkid Marco Asensio. The playmaker has really developed this season and appears to be a world class talent in the making, with Zinedine Zidane more than happy to put his faith in the youngster in the big games.
His ability to score the spectacular makes him an eye catching player, but there is so much more to his game than just brilliant goals, and he would light up the Premier League given the chance at Chelsea.
Asensio will undoubtedly go on to be a world renowned talent and name in football, and if Chelsea were to swoop now and splash the big bucks, they could well have a star for years to come.
Chelsea fans, what do you make of Asensio? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
