Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are intrigued at the news coming in from Metro – with the publication claiming that Chelsea are closing in on a deal to sign Boca Juniors striker Jonathan Calleri.
The 22-year-old striker looks all set to join the west London side in January, and will receive an Italian passport in the coming days – and this news has certainly got the Blues faithful here in the Tavern pretty happy!
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he hasn’t seen much of Calleri play live, but admits he has seen him on Youtube – and can tell that he could be a revelation in the Premier League.
Quick, agile and an eye for goal – the Argentinian striker looks set to give Diego Costa some competition upfront, and this is something the Chelsea fans here in the pub have been crying out for.
Steven, a hardcore Chelsea fan here in the Tavern, feels that the club have been in desperate need of some added potency upfront, and hopes that the potential addition of Calleri will help get Diego Costa firing on all cylinders again too!
