Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are really not best pleased with the way things have gone this summer and you can see why.
The Blues are the champions of England at the moment, but they have not conducted business to reflect that, nor the fact that they are in the Champions League.
Understandably, Antonio Conte is unhappy and so it remains to be seen just whether or not he manages to sign some players before the window shuts.
However, one player that definitely won’t be helping him out is Diego Costa with the striker going AWOL ever since it was clear that Conte didn’t want him.
Indeed, many are expecting him to return to Atletico Madrid sooner or later but – according to The Sun – Everton are keen on trying to do a deal.
Certainly, this deal has caught the eye of our local Toffees who think, should such a deal go through, that they would have to be considered dark horses for the league.
Indeed, it really would get the juices flowing around Goodison Park if it happened.
Everton’s transfer business has been widely praised this summer but if they got Costa in you could seriously rewrite the script for this season.
The Blues would become a seventh title challenger this year and, though it is probably a bit far-fetched, the club is certainly capable of forking out to get him in.
