Chelsea look to pull off sensational transfer coup

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:47 Jan 24th 2017

The Premier League title is now most definitely Chelsea’s to lose, with victory over Hull on Sunday afternoon stretching the Blues’ advantage at the top of the table to eight points.

Only players with genuine quality can be expected to come in and strengthen this side, so it comes as no great surprise to see the Daily Mirror linking the West London outfit with a move for Victor Lindelof.

VICTOR LINDELOF

Regarded as one of the best young defenders in Europe, the 22-year-old has no shortage of admirers, with Manchester United and Inter Milan also thought to be interested in securing his signature.

Able to do a job at right-back, but most at home in central defence, the Sweden international has been an absolute revelation since making his breakthrough at Benfica:

This season alone, Lindelof has started 23 of 24 games for his club across the Primeira Liga and Champions League, helping them to keep an impressive 12 clean sheets.

Strong in the air and adept at making perfectly-timed challenges, the 22-year-old exudes a real sense of calm as he goes about his defensive duties.

John Terry is coming towards the end of what has been an illustrious playing career at Stamford Bridge, so it makes perfect sense that Chelsea would be looking to replace him with someone who has the potential to fill his sizeable boots.
