It promises to be a big summer for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, who hope the club make better moves in preparation to defend a Premier League title than last time.
Having struggled so badly to keep up the momentum of their last trophy win, our west London locals are eager to see top brass at the club learn from their mistakes.
So, the Blues in the bar have been delighted to read reports from the Sun today. They claim sporting director Michael Emenalo has identified West Ham United star Manuel Lanzini as a target at Stamford Bridge.
Recently called up the Argentine national squad, the 24-year-old is reportedly an attractive option for Chelsea, who will surely be on the hunt for high-quality reinforcements.
While Emenalo hasn’t always proved to be the most popular figure amongst the Chelsea fans in the bar, stealing a London rival’s best player would endear the Nigerian to our locals somewhat.
