Chelsea legend Joe Cole has urged the Blues to sign Argentina World Cup goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez after he played a key role in Argentina’s World Cup success.
Speaking on the All to play for podcast, Cole urged his former side to make a move for the keeper, saying, “You know what he is good at? Crossing, commanding and you know he’s connected to his back four. In the big moments he delivered.
“If I’m Chelsea I am tabling a bid for him now. I think he was outstanding.”
However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that a winter deal for the Argentine is unlikely. He told House of Champions:
“I don’t see him moving in January because the goalkeeper market is very different.
“Look at [Dominik] Livakovic for example. He has been fantastic for Croatia but there is nothing ongoing because that market is different.
“All top clubs have a goalkeeper right now. The priority for Martinez at the moment is to focus on Aston Villa.”
