Football transfer rumours: Chelsea keen on West Ham’s Michail Antonio?

Today’s fluff has got a fist of pure emotionIt has already been a good year for Chelsea. The opening days of 2017 have seen both Arsenal and Liverpool unexpectedly drop points in away games they might have expected to comfortably win, leaving the Blues basking in the luxury of both a game in hand and a five-point lead at the table’s summit.
