There may be a break in the Premier League schedule, but the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are as excitable as ever…
After a mixed start to the Premier League for the Blues, it was always expected that Antonio Conte would look to ring the changes in January.
Chelsea are conceding goals every week, and under a defensively minded Italian like Conte – that was never going to stand.
Widely touted in the Tavern as the best central defender in Europe, Bonucci and Chelsea have long been linked; but the rumours appear to be gaining steam once again ahead of the January transfer window.
Whilst a deal for Bonucci certainly has some perks, our landlord is not totally convinced on the deal. The Chelsea fans in-house are all for it – but are Chelsea fans around the world of the same opinion?
Our landlord took to Twitter to find out, and, surprisingly – the Blues fans are pretty unanimous in their thoughts…

Bonucci would be an absolute dream signing, and if the board were prepared to offer 58M for Koulibaly, we'd definitely hit his valuation.

Bonucci Thorgan & Di Maria would be great business in the Jan window. #CFC

Whilst the Chelsea fans look delighted, this Arsenal fan does raise a good point…
Chelsea willing to spend 60M on Bonucci who is 30, that is complete madness! More money then sense. #AFC

Whilst Chelsea would no doubt be paying a top fee for a player that is reaching the twilight of his career – our landlord still thinks that it would be a good deal.
Chelsea are in desperate need of a top class central defender – and Bonucci definitely fits that bill.
A defence of Zouma and Bonucci, on first glance, would be unstoppable!
It doesn’t matter what anyone in the Tavern says – the Chelsea fans are longing for this deal to come true.
Chelsea fans – thoughts?
