Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to see some last minute signings before the end of the transfer window but, according to German outlet Sport Bild, a deal for Sead Kolasinac is off the cards.
The Blues have been flying in the Premier League this season and go into tonight’s game against Liverpool eight points clear of Arsenal in the table.
They’ll be looking to get any advantage over their rivals off of the pitch, too, in the coming hours but it seems like the Schalke left back will not be part of that.
The outlet has claimed that Chelsea did want to seal a deal for the Bosnian defender but the Bundesliga side have now decided to reject the move at this late stage – leaving the Blues with little time for an alternative.
Our landlord thinks it’ll be interesting to see how Antonio Conte reacts to this rejection and to see whether or not he can get another option in – particularly with them travelling to Anfield for a huge game later this evening.
Thoughts on this missed deal, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
