Our Chelsea fans here inside the Transfer Tavern are shaking their heads at the some of the names that the Blues have been linked with in recent weeks.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is clearly in the hunt for a backup striker to Spaniard Alvaro Morata, however, in recent weeks some of the names that have been reported with a move to Stamford Bridge is mind-boggling to the majority of our regulars in the bar.
What it does scream out though, is that Conte is on the scout across the Premier League and Europe for a tall target man, something completely different from Morata. Clearly, Edin Dzeko is a good player, though perhaps not the answer over in SW6.
The barman can see why the Peter Crouch link was floating around but at the striker’s current age, it would have been a very strange move. Although the rest of the bar staff think it all screams of desperation from the Blues, as they bid to bring new blood into the squad and avoid the disaster of the summer window.
Considering this, our landlord takes a look at two target men who Conte should take into consideration…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
