Etienne Capoue to Chelsea is not the most prominent of rumours on the back pages of newspapers, but this may be due to the fact that not many people know how good this player really is.
Or it could be that he has been a transfer target for Arsenal for some time now, according to The Sun.
If Chelsea wanted to highjack this deal, they have the spending power and allure to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
And why would they want to do that? To put it quite simply—he is a midfield general.
The two in Chelsea's 4-2-3-1 has come under question since the Blues have been leaking goals, and some fans wonder if the back four is getting enough protection.
In previous seasons, the finger would have been pointed at John Obi Mikel but he has improved greatly this season, so the problem probably lies somewhere else.
Oriol Romeu is still yet to show he is a top class player, and Roberto Di Matteo doesn't appear to be a fan of his so his playing time could remain at minimal.
Frank Lampard is getting older now and has been guilty of not following his defensive duties at times, which can leave the defence exposed.
This is why Capoue could be the perfect buy for Chelsea.
He is a ball winner who can break up play and tackle, and he has excellent distribution that could help turn defence in to attack and get the attacking midfielders more involved in the game quickly.
