Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news coming in from Metro via reports in Italy – with the publication claiming that the Blues have tabled a £14.5 million bid to sign Bologna midfielder Amadou Diawara.
The news has certainly caused a stir with the Blues fans here in the Tavern, with them all admitting they’ve never heard of the midfielder!
At the age of just 18, Diawara is excelling for Bologna this season and our landlord thinks it is no surprise to see Jose Mourinho keep tabs on him, as he undoubtedly looks destined for a bright future in professional football.
The landlord here in the Tavern says he has seen the midfielder play on the flatscreen TV here in the pub many times, and feels he is the perfect long-term solution for the London outfit.
Meanwhile, a handful of Chelsea supporters enjoying a beer and burger here in the Tavern are arguing whether Diawara is really needed, as the club already have Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is already showing he has the capability of playing in the first-team on a regular basis!
Chelsea fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Diawara at the club? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
