The Romanian international has already bagged himself four goals this season, including two in a 2-0 win to take his side to the play-off round of the Champions League on Wendesday night.
His early season form as well as his performances at the European Championships in France this summer has put the 23-year-old on the radar for Premier League clubs and has been strongly linked to Southampton already this summer.
Should Antonio Conte further his interest in the attacking midfielder, The Blues should be able to snap him up at a low price, with the Romanian outfit valuing their man at €6m, which our Landlord reckons is effectively a free transfer this summer.
Chelsea fans, we want to hear from you! What do you make of Stanciu? How much have you seen of him? Let us know in the comments below…
