‘An Absolute Top Signing’ ‘We Should Sign Him ASAP’ Fans On Twitter React To Claims That Chelsea Are After Ligue One Star

Chelsea and Valencia are interested in signing Nice right-back Youcef Atal, according to The Italian website reports that both clubs will battle it out for the attacking fullback.

The Blues are currently subject to a transfer ban so no move for the Algerian international is imminent, but it hasn’t stopped fans on Twitter speculating over whether the Ligue One star would be a good addition:

The poor form of Cesar Azpilicueta would suggest that Chelsea would be in the market for another right-back next summer, but manager Frank Lampard would be hesitant to block Reece James’s path to the first team.

James has not featured so far this season as he is continuing his recovery from an operation last month on damaged ankle ligaments. The right-back is not believed to be far away from making his comeback though and could be back in full training before the end of this month.
