REPORTS: Villa- Boas Wants To Buy English Talent
Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas wants more English players at the club, a source has claimed.
The Blues have been linked with a number of English players in recent months including Manchester City winger Adam Johnson, Bolton’s Gary Cahill, Jack Rodwell of Everton and Birmingham’s Scott Dann. But a Chelsea source admitted to The Sun:
“It’s a big problem for Andre. Unless he can get rid of some of the overseas players he is restricted in what he can do.
“It’s why English players are commanding bigger fees than perhaps they are worth.”
Chelsea already boast an array of talent up top making the move for Johnson unlikely, the Blues also have abundance of cover at the back leaving moves for Cahill and Dann not necessary but with Essien out for up to six months a move for Rodwell is possible.
