Chelsea vs Tottenham derbies are typically less heated than most English derbies, but the fixture remains an important one for both teams each; not least because of what is typically at stake in the league.
Despite this, any potential transfers between the clubs is still looked at through a microscope, with any deals likely to cause resentment from the other side.
Chelsea and Tottenham have had more involvement in stealing transfers AWAY from each other rather than having discussions together over transfers between them; with Willian famously choosing Chelsea despite flying to London for a medical with Spurs.
Chelsea would be wise however to look at the current stock of Tottenham players, with the Spurs playing squad better now than it has been in a number of years.
With Chelsea struggling, they could definitely improve their squad with some Tottenham talent, whilst also offering a host of advantages to the moving player.
Irrelevant of how unlikely the transfers might be, here are THREE Tottenham players who would be better off at Chelsea…
Harry Kane would no doubt be at the top of a host of European clubs transfer lists if he was available, and Chelsea would definitely be included in that pile.
The English front man is prolific, having beaten Diego Costa to the golden boot last year after a terrific season in front of goal.
At points he was so good that Tottenham could have been described as a one man team, and his qualities would improve Chelsea ten fold.
The transfer would also give Kane the opportunity to feed off of some of the best assist-makers in the world, with Eden Hazard and Willian both mainstays in the Chelsea first team.
A front three of Hazard, Kane, Willian is a mouth watering prospect.
Eric Dier was a bit of an unknown when he signed for Tottenham; but you would be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t rate him today.
He had a stellar season last year, becoming a rock in the Tottenham midfield; you could even argue that he was their most important player.
And then this summer at Euro 2016, Dier was one of the few players that impressed during England’s largely disappointing time in France.
With Chelsea seemingly desperate for a new defensive midfielder, with Mikel and Matic set to leave; there is no better alternative than Eric Dier.
An unstoppable rock in midfield; perfect for a defensively faltering Chelsea.
Of all the talent in the Tottenham line up, Alderweireld might not be the first player to come to mind; but what a talent he is.
Picked up for an absolute bargain last year, it is baffling as to why nobody else was in for the defender; especially considering the fantastic year he had at Southampton the year prior.
An absolute rock in defence; he would be the perfect replacement for an ageing John Terry or an out-of-form Gary Cahill.
The Blues should have looked at him when he was available cheaply; but a move down the line for a more expensive fee would still improve the squad ten-fold.
