The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are still waiting for their side to make a transfer splash. The Blues, despite their poor performance last season, haven’t yet made a big move in the transfer market – with their managerial situation clearly having an impact.
It’s been far from an ideal start for the club, especially given how much improvement is needed at Stamford Bridge.
Changes are needed from top to bottom, and at present, it isn’t clear that moves are being made in any direction.
However, whilst transfer moves appear to be few and far between at the club, that doesn’t mean that targets aren’t being lined up. According to the Evening Standard, Jamaal Lascelles is a target of the Blues this summer, with the club apparently eyeing him alongside Tottenham. Newcastle apparently want a whopping £45 million-plus for the defender.
The Newcastle captain, whose market value is rated at £13.5 million by Transfer Markt, has enjoyed a very solid year in the Premier League, and he has emerged as one of England’s best young defenders. At 24-years-old, he’s still developing, and at Chelsea, there’s certainly a need for more defensive depth.
Impressed by his quality, fans are calling for their club to land him provided that it comes at a good price.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
