Blues send Greek envoy
By Fotis Voinikas - Created on 16 Mar 2006

Premiership champions Chelsea are expected to dispatch scouts to Greece on Saturday in order to run the rule over a mystery transfer target.

Blues officials faxed Kallithea to request two VIP tickets for Saturday's match with AEK Athens.

The exact identity of The Blues' target is unknown although rumours suggest it could be Kostas Katsouranis of AEK.

The 26-year-old midfielder was a key player during Greece's unlikely Euro 2004 success and has been ear-marked as a possible Premiership star in the making.

Katsouranis enjoys a burgeoning reputation in his homeland and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho may have been alerted to the player's potential as the Portuguese spreads his net far and wide in the search for summer reinforcements.
Don't know why a club the stature of Chelsea would be in Greece, but if it's true that they are looking at Katsouranis, then Mourinho must have personally asked to check him out because of something he's seen. Not that he's impressed this season. If this were last season I could believe it more.

If they make a decent offer, go for it. Bremen offered something like 3.5 million last summer. 5 million and they got him.

Hope it goes through, but the guy has been in a horrible slump since last year. It's kind of suprising.

Bah hell just go there and sit. Better off going to a smaller team.

Why would Chelsea want Katsouranis? He's not a bad player, and he can certainly play abroad but... Chelsea? Come on. I seriously can't think of a single player of AEK who is fit enough even to train with Chelsea- they don't even have young players with potential likely to play for them, do they?

By the way, I would love to see the faces of the scouts when they are shown their "VIP" seats at El Paso and players like Bartzokas, Georgiev and Koutsospiros grace the field.

^^^ Seriously though, Chelsea's had worse players in the recent past.

At least Kats is fairly young and has a European championship under his belt.

But he'd sit there, certainly.

Not really but he's still got good years of football ahead of him for sure.

Rumors now have it that Chelsea is checking out the team to see if it would be worth while to loan out one of their players. I find this quite unlikely.. We can’t even afford half of any Chelsea players contract.

Well it was a 4-1 win for AEK with goals from Alexopoulos, Ivic, Kapetanos and Emerson.

Hey Icarus this may be off topic but I just noticed your quote and your French is just a bit off.
Quote:
La plus belle chose nel monde e d'aimer AEK!
Proper translation:
La plus belle chose dans la monde et d'aimer AEK!

A better translation from Greek to French would be:
La plus belle chose dans la monde et l'amour pour AEK!
"The most beautiful thing in the world is love for AEK!". This just looks better IMO. Just my 2 cents…

AEKara OMADARA!
