As Chelsea look ready to surrender their Premier League title to Man City this term, manager Antonio Conte has been making no secret of his desire to see a higher calibre of player brought in by the club during the transfer windows.
The Italian is clearly unhappy with some of the signings made seemingly by those in charge above him, and the Italian will no doubt be looking for a move away from the Blues come the summer if things carry on.
However, here at the Tavern, our landlord thinks that the Blues should be keeping hold of Conte and doing all they can to ensure he stays with the club.
One way of doing so will be ensure that top players are brought into the club to maintain any challenges for trophies the club might want to uphold, and our landlord thinks Napoli star Marek Hamsik is exactly the sort of player who fits right into this mould.
Hamsik has been one of the star performers in Serie A now for quite some time, and has been delivering excellent showings for the Naples club, being a key factor behind their drive towards Serie A success over the last few years, despite seeing Juventus usurp them.
The Slovakian skipper deserves his shot at the Premier League, and while he has been a loyal servant to Napoli, he would surely relish the chance of moving to England and showcasing his talents to an even wider worldwide audience.
Chelsea fans what do you think to Hamsik? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
