Chelsea are set to light up the transfer window in the next week with a stunning £130M transfer shopping spree, according to the Express.
The need for reinforcements could not have been clearer as Chelsea were defeated 3-2 by Burnley on the opening day of the season. If we are going to be competitive this year, we need to sign several players before the end of the transfer window – and it looks as though we’re going to do exactly that.
As per the Express, Chelsea have offered £25M in exchange for Valencia right-back Joao Cancelo. The tabloid note that we will also increase our bid for Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater to £25M within the next 24 hours.
We won’t be done there, however. The Express claim that we are also prepared to bid £30M for Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and £50M for Southampton centre-back Virgil Van Dijk.
This is the show of ambition we’ve all been waiting for. Let’s hope we can get two or three of these deals over the line.
