Our resident Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking closely at the news filtering in from Italian outlet CalcioMercato – with the publication suggesting that Chelsea are plotting a deal for Juventus striker Alvaro Morata.
The Blues are set for a major overhaul of their squad in the summer, with Antonio Conte set to make his mark on the Blues team – and it seems that the ex-Real Madrid hitman is a player who could be arriving at Stamford Bridge.
However, the west London outfit will face competition from Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal for the signature of the 25-goal striker, and this news has certainly pleased the majority of Gooners here in the Transfer Tavern – with them all agreeing a new striker is a necessity in the summer.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern can envisage seeing Morata at Chelsea, and feels he is a player that would develop and mature at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old has scored a whopping 25 goals for the Serie A giants, and was a pivotal part of the club’s progress in the Champions League.
