The resident Chelsea supporting punters here at the Football Transfer Tavern have congregated in the pub’s recently renovated pub garden, which is packed to the rafters full of thirsty football fans.
As ever, our landlord here in the Tavern is quick to find all the latest, breaking transfer rumours and gossip in the footballing world, and the latest line that is alerting the Chelsea punters here has come in.
The Mirror is claiming that Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is in talks with Marco Silva’s Watford about a potential transfer away from Stamford Bridge.
The report claims that the Blues will want around £5 million plus add-ons for the Engand under-21 star, and our landlord here in the Tavern thinks that would be a sensational coup for the Hornets.
Of course, Silva’s side have already sealed the signing of creative midfielder Will Hughes from Derby, so the potential of Chalobah and Hughes in the middle of the park is certainly an exciting one, with them both playing together for the England under-21’s.
The Chelsea fans by the bar here in the Tavern think Conte would be foolish to let the young talent leave the club, with them all agreeing that Chalobah has so much more to give to the west London outfit.
Chelsea fans…. Would you be annoyed at this transfer? Or is it time he moved on? Let us know below!
