Better than Costa and Fabregas – this would be Chelsea’s best signing of the summer


There have been a stupendous amount of words written about Diego Costa to Chelsea. That deal looks as if it’s all but concluded now, with the player speaking about the move for the first time this week.

Like Fabregas, Costa offers proven quality and surely won’t go the same way as Torres and Shevchenko. Although he doesn’t have lighting pace, Costa is one of the best finishers in Europe right now.

But we think that Chelsea can do an even better deal than that this summer. The Guardian today suggests that Chelsea are on the trail of Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Arsène Wenger hopes to use some of his cash on Paris Saint-Germain’s £15m Ezequiel “The Chubby One” Lavezzi, 29. Chelsea plan to make a slightly better offer.

We think that Lavezzi really impressed Jose Mourinho last season when Chelsea played PSG in a classic quarter-final tie. While the higher profile Cavani was fairly muted, Lavezzi was a constant thorn in Chelsea’s side, particularly in the first leg, where he drifted in that hole between midfield and attack.

Lavezzi isn’t an orthodox striker- he likes to play behind the front man and generally has such great game intelligence and creativity. The arrival of Fabregas wouldn’t necessarily preclude a bid for the Argentinian. We could imagine them complementing each other in the same side.

PSG don’t necessarily want to sell but you can imagine them spending a huge amount again this summer and they may be persuaded if a huge bid came in.

Let’s have a look at Lavezzi in action. Chelsea fans: do you agree that this could be the most intelligent signing of the summer?




  1. we should get him. he is a good player we need him to get a perfect best wingers him and hazard it a good one for get the age It not cost and I we will be very agree if arsenal get the signature morinho get lavezzi please It will be a good sign we would regret It

  2. Mou,pls i’ll only be satisfy if u sign Alexis sa. From baca if u want to win.but costa,nothing in him but fighting. Also take a look at Falcao,pls we don’t want costa to spore our game will yello or red card.

  3. guys Lavezzi is classic, lethal and a finisher. we have played him twice at napoli and PSG in both games he scored against us. Mour go for him we want trophy winning team.

  4. I think we need Lavezzi. He is a proven player with skills and energy. I think he fits in well in our partern of play. Mou go get him. CFC

  5. Costa is gud enough,he’s strong,he score’s nd he’s young bt lavezzi is nt an opt bt mandzukic,torres nd costa,we r gud 2 go.

  6. mou remeber wot u said ‘ football is like going to market u can make sall 2day 2moro u can’t so let us (chelsea) fan imagine something verywell let bring costa nd manzuki or baloteli no room expiring date player like lavexy again let bring kroos nd fabregas.

  7. Costa,Menzuckich and Torres perfect and wil bring trophy at Chelsea not old age lavezzi why. muorhino knw that this season a trophy is a must or else Abrahimovic will visit u hope u knw wat it means.

  8. what about d players dat dey loaned out? We hav enuf players outside there bt I dnt knw why we keep on buying new players evry season. Nawa for chelsea oo

  9. Let me say it again Chelsea need players in the moulds of Suarez, Rooney, Alexis Sanchez, Di Maria Gareth Bale and may be Tevez. For these players, winning is everything. Without two or more of players like these Chelsea will continue to struggle. Pls tell Abramovich and tell Mourinho if he will listen.
