What are Chelsea fans talking about on Deadline Day? 'What happens if we sign Balotelli?'

Balotelli

Kurt Zouma, the need for a striker, Mario Balotelli and previous deadline day signings all feature.

The big talking point for Chelsea fans today appears to be the £12.5 million signing of Saint-Etienne defender Kurt Zouma.

Zouma is one of the most exciting defensive prospects in France and it’s a tremendous deal for the club if it’s confirmed by Stamford Bridge officials this morning, this afternoon or this evening.

There are also plenty of other topics that Chelsea fans are discussing today. We’ve taken a look at some of the key issues on the minds of the club’s supporters.

 

It will be a great signing if it's confirmed. It's also a real statement from Mourinho and the club because of the number of clubs that were linked with making moves for the 19-year-old Frenchman.

 

A common view, but Chelsea were very unlucky against West Ham and could have won the match easily on another night. A striker signing isn't impossible considering Fernando Torres' injury.

 

There's no harm at all in a little look back in time. The arrivals of David Luiz and Fernando Torres are proof that Roman Abramovich isn't afraid to sanction big money moves on transfer deadline day.

 

I imagine there will be some very happy Chelsea campers! It would be a superb attacking signing for the club and another example of Mourinho's mind games/genius around this time of year.

 

Granted, this Tweet is from last night but it raises an important issue in relation to Chelsea's captain and the possibility that he could move on for nothing in the summer. However, considering Terry and Mourinho's relationship, surely it's a matter of time before an official offer is made to the Chelsea veteran.
