Chelsea have been absolutely brilliant this season and currently, they are nine points ahead of their nearest PL rivals.
It is not surprising that top players are looking to play for the Blues. Yesterday, we covered a report (via Telegraph) claiming that Spanish international and Real Madrid center forward Alvaro Morata expects to join Chelsea next summer.
Now, according to reports (Daily Mail via Fanatik), Bayer Leverkusen star Hakan Calhanoglu is also looking to join Chelsea. he claimed:
“God willing, I will be a Chelsea player next season,”
“There are also a number of other clubs interested in signing me.”
The Turkish international was in top form for the German side before he was suspended by FIFA for four months. He was penalized for breaking a contract agreement with Trabzonspor.
This season, in 22 games for Leverkusen, the 22-year-old star has directly contributed in no fewer than 14 goals (7 goals and 7 assists).
Hakan is a versatile talent who can play anywhere in the attack and the midfield and has what it takes to replace former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas at the Bridge.
Moreover, he is renowned for his ability from set-pieces and currently he is one of the best free kick takers in the game today. In your opinion, should Conte sign Calhanoglu?
