Chelsea hopeful of beating bitter rivals to midfielder deal

There isn’t much more that could possibly cheer the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern up right now than how their table-topping Premier League form has of late. 

The Blues propping up the bar have watched their side truly shoot up the league under Antonio Conte at the expense of some of their biggest domestic rivals, ever since THAT dismal loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.

So, reports from the Daily Mirror suggesting the Stamford Bridge titans could get ANOTHER one over on their capital counterparts have only widened their smiles.

The report claims Chelsea are confident of sealing a £2m deal for Exeter City midfielder Ethan Ampadu ahead of the Gunners, despite the fact his father works on Arsene Wenger’s coaching staff.

The 16-year-old is believed to have impressed during the Grecians’ run in the Checkertrade Trophy, particularly when playing against the Blues.

Having already represented Wales’ U19 side, the midfielder seems destined for big things, already boasting big experience for someone his age.

In fact, he made his first-team debut at the age of 15 earlier this season in a League Cup clash with Championship side Brentford.

How far can Ampadu go in the game? Is it too much, too young? Let us know below…
