What’s the story? No, they’re not. This is just filler. Spurs and Chelsea are well set with much superior players. Spurs are closing in one on of these five strikers. Chelsea are now well stocked for attackers and Hulk is not very good.
Does it make sense? No. Only linked because they have been in the past. Signing would be completely out of synch with both clubs recent transfer work.
Is the price right? £35m or so apparently. Not worth paying £10m for. Both clubs have given up on spending way over the odds for average players.
Will it happen? 0/10 – No way Jose.
