Chelsea: Plenty of fans don’t approve of reported move for Lille’s Boubakary Soumare

With Chelsea now being free to spend some money, you’d have thought fans would be excited about every possible incoming. However, Lille’s Boubakary Soumare isn’t having that impact, and plenty of fans are dead against bringing him to the Premier League despite both them and Manchester United having held talks, according to Sky Sports.

The 20-year-old Frenchman is a defensive midfielder and has made 18 appearances in Ligue 1 this season, as well as six showings in the Champions League where he’s been rated 6.93/10 by WhoScored. He’s broken into the first team this year after only making five starts last season and he’s rated at £19.8m on Transfermarkt.

A decision is not expected to be made on his future until after Lille play Paris Saint Germain on January 26, but many Chelsea fans are already certain they don’t want the club to sign him. It seems they fully expect him to flop if he does join, with a couple of supporters quick to compare him to Tiemoue Bakayoko.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:

Chelsea fans, who do you think Frank Lampard should sign this January?
