Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting a much better performance from the board in the next transfer window than in the previous two.
Chelsea are in dire straits at present, they’ve fallen out of the top-four in the Premier League and are facing a tough bunch of fixtures in March, which could define their season. Chelsea need goals and plenty of them, despite the capture of Olivier Giroud in January. Indeed, he’s a player who is still finding his feet and, with Alvaro Morata not having found the net regularly enough recently, the search must go on.
Our regulars have caught wind of the latest rumour flying around over the Polish hitman Robert Lewandowski, it’s reported that alongside Man United, Chelsea are in the hunt for the 20 goals a season frontman.
Indeed, they will face some tough opposition from the likes of PSG and Real Madrid but Conte has to go all out for this one according to our main bar staff. However, our landlord disagrees and thinks Chelsea should instead look at ONE of these TWO strikers instead…
The deadly PSG striker is looking like an unhappy figure in Ligue 1 at present, and it’s been reported that he wants a move in the summer. Edinson Cavani would suit Chelsea and they desperately need him right now. In a similar mould to Diego Costa, the South American has netted 24 times in 24 league games this season and found the net six times in the Champions League.
Conte needs those type of numbers in his team, and would be silly not to pursue the striker should he come available following the arrival of Neymar in the French capital.
Another player supposedly unhappy with life at his club this season, the City marksman is for the first time having to fight for his place since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus. Pep Guardiola is a man who likes to play a certain style and Aguero, however much he has improved his overall game, doesn’t seem Pep’s first choice.
The Argentine is a natural goalscorer and has done it in the Premier League for many a year. As you can imagine, he’d be a hugely popular signing amongst the Blues propping up our bar.
