Chelsea stormed to the Premier League title last season under Antonio Conte, and Blues fans will have been delighted with the Italian’s achievements during his first year in charge of the club.
Regulars here at The Transfer Tavern, we love welcoming the boys from Stamford Bridge into our humble abode, with the West London contingent regularly making the booth within reaching distance of the bar their own. Our landlord loves to jump in on a chat with the boys in Blue, and talk quickly turned to winter transfers over the course of several pints. Chelsea have a knack for procuring top young talent from club across the globe, and there is a distinct possibility the club’s extensive scouting network could be utilised again this month to add future stars to the set-up at Cobham.
Top, promising young stars were mentioned by the fans, but our landlord wanted to bring their attentions to a 20-year-old currently setting the Swiss Super League alight. Albian Ajeti signed for regular league champions Basle in the summer from St Gallen, after the youngster had just signed for the Swiss minnows from Augsburg following a loan deal at the club. Yet another future Swiss star of Albanian descent, Ajeti is already knocking on the door of a call-up to the Swiss national side ahead of the World Cup after impressing for the U21’s, and his remarkable eight league goals in only nine outings since breaking into the first-team at Basle has brought the player into focus.
Chelsea could turn to the player to swell their promising ranks, and loan the player back to the Swiss title holders until the end of the season. Ajeti is without a doubt the brightest young talent in Swiss football, and should Chelsea secure a deal for the player, they could have a future Premier League star on their hands.
Chelsea fans, think another move for a future youngster is a good move this month? Let us know!
