The fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting Chelsea to be busy in the transfer market this summer…
The Blues are impressing in the Premier League this year, and look likely to seal the title, but next season will provide a very different animal for Antonio Conte to tame.
The return of Champions League football to Stamford Bridge will be a drain on resources for the Italian, and so a few big signings will be needed.
The Chelsea fans in the pub weren’t banking on losing a player in order to gain one, though, and that is exactly what the Sun are reporting could happen this summer. According to the Sun, Chelsea could look to offer Andreas Christensen to Southampton in an effort to secure a deal for Virgil van Dijk, leaving the Blues in the pub stunned.
Indeed, many even think that Christensen is better than van Dijk, and whilst a few of the fans on Twitter think that a loan move for Christensen could be good business for the Blues – many more think that the Dane is ready for a Stamford Bridge return…

Sign Van Dijk and give Southampton Christensen on loan seems positive, see what he's like in the prem!

£50m plus Christensen would be a brilliant deal for Southampton.

Nahh this is very unfair towards Christensen. He is above Southampton standard

Van Dijk made a name for himself after given an opportunities at Celtic & Southampton. Christensen & Aké more than deserve a proper go.
