Chelsea are set to launch an audacious £50million pound bid to land Everton goal scoring ace Tim Howard, after the American goalkeeper kept up his fine goal ratio of 1 every 12 years. Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich is keen to bring in a front man to end Chelsea’s reliance on Fernando Torres’ fine record of 3 goals a century.
Howard’s agent claimed ‘there was always going to be interest in Tim at this rate, he’s scored more this season than both Arsene Wenger and a tin of paint combined. When those stats start appearing it’s only a matter of time before Chelsea wet their sheets and come calling.’
He added ‘we’ve also had interest from Manchester United, but they’re looking more for someone to fill that gap between the south and north stand, where a team should be you know? Ultimately Tim has his heart set on Chelsea, something about the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge giving him a good place to write his memoirs. Should be great.’
