With the COVID-19 pandemic ruling the roost, it remains to be seen just how much the associated financial implications affect the forthcoming summer transfer window.
The consensus among the media, is that transfer fees will drop as clubs look to be prudent after the loss of several lucrative revenue streams.
Therefore, if players can be picked up on a free transfer and that player can drop straight into the starting eleven then it is a win-win situation.
Today, The Daily Mail is reporting that just might be the case as far as Chelsea are concerned.
Our quoted source is reporting that Frank Lampard’s interest in bringing the Belgian striker, Dries Mertens, to Stamford Bridge is such that he has personally spoken to the Napoli player who is available on a free transfer.
Mertens may be 32-years-of-age but I believe he can still do a job for Chelsea, but is that a view you concur with?
