Amid the lavish spending currently being conducted by the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reasonably quiet.
Even our Arsenal supporting punters have been dancing on the pool tables in recent days, much to those from West London’s chagrin.
While the Stamford Bridge faithful have had little to complain about on the field since Antonio Conte arrived in England, they have been relatively lax in the transfer market.
Only N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi have been brought in to bolster the ranks, though reports from the Daily Mail have our Blues in a frenzy.
They claim that Conte is close to the double signing of Marcos Alonso of Fiorentina and Marcelo Brozovic of Inter Milan.
Yesterday, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague praised the Spaniard’s potential move to London, suggesting the 25-year-old could suprise many.
Marcos Alonso would surprise many as he's moving closer to Chelsea. He can play LB, LM or even CB. Powerful run, intelligent+solid defender

Brozovic meanwhile, is a techinically gifted Croatian international and was understood to have attracted the attention of Serie A champions Juventus.
