@TunnyKvng Drogba and Haaland hybrid?? Let’s goooooooooo!!!

@LordZolaa No big price tag looming over him which will be good. If the fans give him time to adapt he looks like he has all the right attributes. I’d like to see Hall and Hutchinson either side of him with Carney behind and Kova and Zakaria sitting.

@TweetChelseaUK Last Ivorian striker turned out to be pretty good… No pressure

@OdogwuFootball Once upon a time we used to sign big names and taunted or neighbors for signing yoh yoh players, now the reverse is the case. Who am I? Welcome to the Chelsea to the #Kroenke #Arsenal Wilderness

@egbujijoshua Agba baller. Welcome to Stamford bridge.
