According to Le Buteur, Chelsea are being linked with the possibility of signing Napoli’s Faouzi Ghoulam.
The Blues are currently top of the Premier League table by a point – much to the delight of our resient Blues fans here in the Transfer Tavern – and they are pleased to see their club are looking for ways to improve ahead of the second half of the season.
Certainly, the feeling here amongst all of the regular punters here by the bar is that we are set for one of the tightest title races in recent memory and so any edge any of the contenders can get will surely be welcomed.
Antonio Conte has transformed Chelsea’s fortunes this season with a 3-4-3 formation and so it now appears he wants to sign the Naples based player to help increase the system’s effectiveness over the coming months.
Ghoulam has demonstrated a distinct ability to get forward from his defensive starting position with five assists this year and so a return like that at Stamford Bridge could be enough to help them win the league.
The Blues clash with Manchester City this weekend as they look to maintain their position at the summit.
Our landlord can’t wait for things to kick off at the Etihad whilst he thinks Ghoulam could be a decent signing to boot.
