The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are still celebrating the fact their beloved Blues are sitting pretty eight points clear atop the Premier League, singing the name ‘Antonio Conte’ often and loudly.
Part of the reason our west London locals are so happy right now is not only due to the fact they lead the league, but the notion of seeing the Italian develop younger players into members of the first-team squad has also gone down a storm.
Conte has introduced Nathaniel Chalobah and Nathan Ake into first-team proceedings, a departure from the norm in SW6. Which is why reports from the Scottish Sun have provided our Stamford supporters with such optimism.
They claim the table toppers are just the latest to be weighing up a move for Falkirk sensation Tony Gallacher as interest in the 17-year-old defender begins to grow. Such are the nature of the talented teen’s performances for the Bairns, a raft of top-level teams have been mooted as potential suitors.
Still, with top quality options at full-backs becoming such a hot commodity in the market these days, the Blues are believed to have watched him action of late.
