After raiding Barcelona in the summer for the signature of Pedro Rodrigues, Chelsea will soon head to Spain again in a bid to lure Atletico Madrid trio Antoine Greizmann, Koke and Diego Godin to Stamford Bridge, reports Spanish newspaper AS.
The Blues have had a long standing relationship with Atletico Madrid with the likes of Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa joining from the Rojiblancos. It is now looking like both clubs will agree an unprecedented deal for the aforementioned trio to join their former team mates in the January transfer market.
For the three players, they have been regular starters for the Rojiblancos and it will take Abrahamovic’s willingness to break the bank before the Madrid side can consider any deal for their star players.
The attack of Chelsea has lacked a little bit of bite and it is expected that Greizmann would provide the desired prowess. As for Koke, his interest stems from the inability of Chelsea midfielders, particularly Fabregas, to replicate last season’s form. With Koke’s zest in the midfield, Chelsea’s dexterity in midfield will be restored.
Chelsea’s style of play has been built on an ideology where the defence foils attack and concedes less goals but this season has been a night mare for the Blues. John Terry and Ivanovic have been poor this season and it is believed that the aforementioned duo are in their final season. Godin has an outstanding presence at the heart of defence and will fit perfectly in the ailing Chelsea side.
