Chelsea fans on Twitter react to Djilobodji signing

Chelsea’s signing of Nantes defender Papy Djilobodji has not gone down too well with some Blues supporters on Twitter.

After the summer-long pursuit of John Stones failed, Djilobodji has been compared unfavourably by some to the Everton and England centre-back.

But others were happier to give Djilobodji a chance before judging him, noting that Cesar Azpilicueta and Kurt Zouma were similarly unheralded when joining from Marseille and Saint-Etienne respectively.
