The Blues already have a wealth of young and promising talent in the attacking midfield areas with the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Oscar and Victor Moses all proving difficult to fit into the Chelsea jigsaw collectively.
So it's clear to see that Chelsea already have a vast array of riches in this area and if you add in the fact that Kevin De Bruyn will back next year and Marco Marin it looks like a signing that is again rather lacking in thought process. To be fair to Taison he can play out wide and genuine width is something that Chelsea do lack, however it remains to be seen whether he will be a player able to provide both Demba Ba and Fernando Torres with the quality crosses that they require to flourish.
The Blues who are so used to getting their own way in the transfer window were believed to have had their offer accepted for the 24-year-old Metalist man however new reports are indicating that an unnamed Premier League are ready to attempt to thwart their bid at the last minute. Nevertheless the mystery suitors are likely to need significant financial clout to match a determined Chelsea.
Whether Chelsea get their man or not questions must surely be raised just how much thought is going in regards to their transfer policy, with experience heads like Frank Lampard being replaced by the players who without question have ability but are hugely lacking in Premier League experience looks a huge gamble to take.
