The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have slightly renewed their optimism around Stamford Bridge with their latest form putting them back in the race for a top-four finish.
Antonio Conte and his side have been a figment of their normal title-winning selves this season as they’re still looking likely to fall short of Champions League qualification. A mixture of factors have resulted in this happening but most of all the abysmal transfer windows Chelsea have been apart of this year has really not helped.
To say they haven’t helped is an understatement, their business has been the main reason behind their failures this season and if that is to be amended this summer, then the Blues should seriously take a look at Benfica’s Franco Cervi, who is valued at £14.4 million by Transfer Markt.
At 23-years-old, Cervi is an exciting winger that really has the potential to prosper in a Chelsea shirt with his dynamic play going forward to create chances for himself and team-mates around him. Chelsea’s normally dominant attacking players such as Willian, Pedro and Eden Hazard have all been rather quiet in recent weeks, and so it makes sense to bring in more quality in this regard. Our landlord thinks that Cervi would be a great choice.
This season with 4 goals and 10 assists, the Argentinian forward has proven his worth and that alone should encourage Chelsea towards his signature.
What’s more, he’s also got brilliant technical ability, allowing him to move past players and drive towards goal. An excellent passer, he’s also great at moving the ball forward, and at 23-years-old, he’s only going to get better.
Chelsea have not been good this season and with their rivals spending big money to ensure their success keeps on happening, Roman Abramovich has to follow suit and spend this summer.
Franco Cervi is a realistic target that could work wonders at Stamford Bridge and Antonio Conte and his side would be crazy not to attempt to bring him to England.
