Chelsea suffer blow in pursuit of dynamic midfielder

If the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have taken anything from their season so far, it is that Chelsea desperately need more squad depth…

Granted, Chelsea have enjoyed a fantastic start to the Premier League season, with Antonio Conte’s side at the top of the Premier League table – having beaten main title rivals Man City last weekend.

However, Chelsea’s reliance on their set first team has been clear for all to see – with Conte opting to start the same 11 players for the best part of 2 months.

This is something that simply cannot be allowed to go on long-term, as it could cost the Blues – and the overreliance is particularly clear in the heart of the midfield.

Cesc Fabregas doesn’t fit the system, and Conte cannot rely on Matic and Kante forever – so he must look elsewhere.

Unfortunately for the Blues in the Tavern, though, it would appear that midfield depth will not come in the form of long-term target Radja Nainggolan.

According to Calcio Mercato, AS Roma Director of Sport Frederic Massara is looking to renew the contract of Nainggolan Рwith Roma looking to tie down a number of their most important players to long-term deals.

This has come as a blow for the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern – with Nainggolan touted by many as the perfect midfield player for the Premier League.

With a new deal for the Belgian a priority for Roma, it would appear as though the Blues are going to have to look elsewhere. Our landlord thinks that maybe Chelsea should start utilising their fantastic youth system – with Nathaniel Chalobah looking more than ready for a Premier League starting berth.
