The Chelsea supporting punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern still haven’t stopped celebrating after watching their team claim the Barclays Premier League crown last weekend, with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.
The beers and champagne have been flowing ever since and even though the club still has a FA Cup Final to look forward to, there seems to be very little that can dampen the supporters’ spirits right now.
Some of the more ardent supporters have already started mapping out next season and with the club set to embark on Champions League football again they will naturally need a much bigger squad, with summer recruits likely to be on the horizon.
One area that Chelsea may look to strengthen is in attack, with various reports of late linking Diego Costa with a money spinning move to China and if he does leave it will certainly leave a massive void.
One player who could strengthen the Blues’ attack is Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente, who has netted 14 goals for the Swans in his maiden season playing football in the Premier League.
The Spaniard was courted by Chelsea previously in the campaign but nothing came to fruition and the Blues boss Antonio Conte could return to make a move in the summer.
One big selling point to signing the player would be his valuation and it is unlikely that he would cost a fortune, with the player himself most likely to instigate a move away from the Liberty Stadium should Chelsea vent their interest.
One Chelsea fan is sat with a cold pint of cider here in the Tavern and he thinks Llorente would be an excellent addition to the Chelsea squad, stating that the Blues should try and sign him at all costs.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome this Spanish striker to the club? Let us know in the comments below!!!
