Chelsea fans react as club reportedly closes in on £30m Adama Traore deal

According to reports in The Mirror, Chelsea are reportedly closing in on a £30m deal to sign Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore, and Blues fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.

The Mirror says that while the Championship play-off side are keen to keep the 22-year-old following an impressive season, they could lose him to the west London outfit even if they win promotion to the Premier League.

The former Barcelona youngster has added an end product to his wing play this term after scoring five goals and providing a further 10 assists in 34 league games, while according to WhoScored.com he has successfully completed 243 of the 303 dribbles he has attempted.

With Willian and Pedro getting no younger, Antonio Conte could be looking to strengthen in wide areas if he stays at Stamford Bridge this summer, but he also has youngsters Callum Hudson-Odoi, Charly Musonda and Kenedy in his ranks.

Chelsea supporters, who loved Gary Cahill’s performance against Mo Salah on Sunday, took to social media to give their thoughts on the rumour, and while one said “Charly Musonda is better”, another said he is “miles behind Hudson-Odoi”.
