To put it mildly, it hasn’t, so far, been the most productive of summer transfer windows for Chelsea Football Club.
At a time when, after missing out on Champions League football last season, it’s plainly obvious the squad needs strengthening, we’ve brought in just the one big-name buy, Jorginho.
Instead of adding to the squad, we’ve been fretting for weeks about the possibility that we could lose more players than we buy with the futures of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and N’Golo Kante all generating numerous column inches.
But, looking on the bright side, there are still six days to go before the summer transfer window does close and there is still the opportunity for the club to make an impact in the market.
Today, according to the popular tabloid publication, the Mirror, Chelsea are linked with the possible acquisition of the Crystal Palace player, Wilfried Zaha.
After a disappointing spell at Old Trafford, with a big-money move not working out, the 25-year-old returned to Selhurst Park and has rebuilt his career to dramatic effect.
According to our quoted source, Zaha has told his team-mates he is ready to leave the club and wishes to try his luck, again, at a big club.
Seemingly, ourselves and Tottenham Hotspur are in the running for the exciting forward and it remains to be seen which of the two London clubs if at all, are successful.
However, pondering over the speculation, here at Vital Chelsea, we cannot help but think that instead of Zaha being added to the squad, could well be lined up as a direct replacement for Eden Hazard.
Is that a common train of thought amongst the Vital Chelsea fraternity or am I alone in thinking along those lines?
