We’re at the stage of the season whereby supporters are looking for an inspirational move, from their side, in the transfer window.

It’s fair to say that Chelsea’s season, after a good start, has spluttered in recent weeks, with defeats becoming as regular as victories.

Winning silverware this season remains a priority but the feeling is there it may not happen with the side not quite being as good as those around us.

Therefore, returning to the inspiration theme, I have to say that one piece of transfer speculation has really caught my eye this morning.

It comes courtesy of the news vehicle, the Express, which is championing the inference that Chelsea could be about to spend £100 million on a player for the first time in their history.

According to the referenced source, Chelsea have enquired about signing the Brazilian midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, who is on the books of Barcelona.

The 26-year-old joined the Catalan side, from Liverpool, during the last transfer window for a sum said to be of the magnitude of £143 million.

However, Coutinho hasn’t been as successful in Spain as it was hoped and this season has started just 11 games in La Liga.

Now whether our source is purely trying to boost sales figures or has a genuine insight into the possibility of such a deal being struck remains to be seen.

But what are your thoughts on the possibility of Chelsea breaking through that £100 million barrier to sign Coutinho?

Would it be a move that gets your approval or would we be better served spending that kind of cash on somebody else?

Please feel free to drop your point of view in the comment facility beneath this article.

  • Chelsea need new blood. We need to buy coutinho and paredes for midfield. Upfront we need lozano, fekir, piatek/higuan and pulisic. Chelsea must sell hazard, willian, alonso and azp. They are grt players but they do not execute what their coach instruct them to do. Yesterday’s match was an example, they moved the ball slowly as if they are 10-0 up. My dream chelsea line up is (4: emerson, luiz, rudiger, zappa) (3: DCM paredes, LCM coutinho, RCM kante) (LW lozano, CF higuan, RW pulisic). The problem with eden kovacic and willian is this, they love to play on the corner making meaningless passes holding the ball for 5 mins as if they want to pass the ball to the linesman. They must learn from salah, 1 touch pass the ball and move goalwards allowing full backs to get on wide areas and run into the box waiting for delivery. All those chelsea they can’t do that

  • you better act fast nd get him even if barca want William Chelsea should go for d deal cos the problem y striker s are not scoring at Chelsea no is dat dey lack creative misfider like cotinho

  • Jorgihno to be benched! Very weak, offers nothing defensively and offensively! Kante to play his position. Let Hazard go. buy Coutihno to play with William, Odoi, Pulisc, and Pedro.Buy a striker like Bellot or Icardi.sell Alonso and trust Parmieri .

    our team
    Kepa, Azp, Rudiger,Luiz, Parmieri,kante, Barkley,cheek Willian, coutihno, Icard.

  • PLS DO EVERYTHING WITHING YOUR RICH TO SIGN COTINHO FROM BARCELONA HE IS A GOOD PLAYER WE NEED PLAYERS THAT CAN TURN THINGS AROUND FOR CHELSEA THE MONEY IS THERE LETS INVEST IT SND WE WILL SURELY RIP IT I KNOW THAT FOR SURE.BRING IN HEGUAIN INTIME SO HE CAN FUTURE AGAINST TOTTENHAM.THANKA

  • Our problem in chelsea is Sarri and chelsea board. Get us lcardi and Sarri should play Hazard in his position switch kante and jogihno bring in Emarson in place of Alonso.

  • Comment plz sarri tat attitude of playing hazard as false 9 is killing us,arsenal is a big team there4 u could have put Olivier giroud at his position en hazard play as a winger .Jorginho is slow not lyk fabrigas ,plz sarri don’t blame players it is your mistake.

  • Let sari think of a striker like sturidge ad exchange cotinho with hazard ad give odoi a chance

  • Release William and Pedro Chelsea should buy icardi and give more training to Giraud and return kante to his normal position

  • please Chelsea fan please I beg every one of you, t o forget about selling Eden hazard because he is one of our best player together with Kate and William this season.

  • Do not sale Hazard for any reason. Hazard is the best player we have ever had. I support Chelsea to complete the signing of countiho .If it requires breaking the bank let our landlords do without hesitation. Chelsea loosing to Arsenal yesterday was a shock. We cannot loose out of the four. I beg marina to get us the Barcelona man. Thanks

  • Despite the fact i love Eden Hazard so much the way he’s going about Real Madrid issue is irritating me. The best solution is for Chelsea fc to purchase the services of the Brazilian.
