Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are incredibly excited at the news filtering in from the Sun – with the publication claiming that the Blues are moving closer to securing a deal for Shakhtar Donetsk’s attacking midfielder Alex Teixeira.
The report claims that advanced talks are underway over a deal, and this has got our resident Chelsea fans here in the Tavern off to the bar to buy a round of shots!
Our landlord feels this would be a fantastic bit of business for Guus Hiddink and his side, and will provide a new element of creativity, that will ultimately help them score more goals and edge themselves up the Premier League table.
The publication suggests it will take £30 million to land the talented 25-year-old midfielder, and the majority of the Chelsea punters here in the Tavern feel it would be an astute purchase.
Ian, a hardcore Chelsea supporter over by the pool table, had his say on the matter: “Teixeira looks like a special, special player – can you imagine him and Willian playing together on the same pitch…. Dreamy!”
