Chelsea linked with surprising move for 31-year-old with great record this season

Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are fairly happy even if they do not sign anyone during this window but, according to Talksport’s Ian Abrahams on Twitter, they may be about to anyway.

The Blues have ran away and hid so far in the Premier League title race and could knock Liverpool out of the battle for good if they beat them at Anfield tonight.

In the meantime, though, there’s plenty of transfer rumblings to keep us occupied by the bar and Abrahams’ claim that the Blues are interested in David Stockdale is raising some eyebrows for sure.

Stockdale has been hugely influential in helping Brighton surge to the sharp end of the Championship this season with an impressive 14 clean-sheets in 26 games.

You can see why Chelsea might be interested in bringing him in, then, though our landlord isn’t sure he’d get to play many games.

Thibaut Courtois is a better ‘keeper than Stockdale for sure and so the current Brighton stopper would have to weigh up whether he wants to start sitting on the bench a lot more should he move.

Would you take Stockdale, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
