Yesterday, in an echo of the 2015 summer transfer window, we had a rumor pop up about Chelsea looking at Zenit St. Petersburg's Ezequiel Garay. Silly stuff, really.
Now, here's another echo of last summer, with Tunisian center back Aymen Abdennour apparently back in the running. More silliness? There are lots of reports substantiating each other...
Chelsea work on deal for Valencia defender Abdennour. FranceFootball talk about a loan with option to buy. #CFC— Francois Piraux (@F8Piraux) August 31, 2016
Valencia are in the process of acquiring Eliaquim Mangala on loan from Manchester City, which would possibly free up the 27-year-old Abdennour for the move that he rejected in favor of Valencia just twelve months ago.
This is truly desperation mode now.
