Revealed: Chelsea on verge of huge transfer decision

Jamie VardyChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have launched a debate after hearing that their club is split 50/50 on a transfer decision in January, with a final outcome to be decided upon within the next fortnight.

Metro state that Jose Mourinho will decide in the next 14 days whether to move for Leicester City’s Jamir Vardy or West Brom’s Saido Berahino in January.

The Blues have seen their current crop of strikers struggle this season and alterations will be made in January, with new arrivals incoming and other stars potentially on their way out.

Mourinho faces a major decision on his hands and is said to be unsure of Vardy’s credibility, report The Telegraph, despite the England international scoring in ten consecutive Premier League matches and topping the scoring charts.

Berahino would prove to be the cheaper option, as the 22-year-old has just 18 months remaining on his current contract, but he’s earned himself a reputation following his antics after failing to secure a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

Our contingent of supporters in the bar are split down the middle, with many feeling that Jamie Vardy is the perfect target whilst others feel that Berahino presents better long-term value.

Which striker should Chelsea move for? Let us know in the comments below!
