Before N’Golo Kante joined Chelsea the midfielder was linked with a move to Arsenal. Before we spotted Riyad Mahrez meeting up with Antonio Conte at Hotel Harbour, the Algeria international was linked with Arsenal.
Now looks like Chelsea are preparing themselves to snatch another Arsenal target in Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia. With Gunners going through an injury crisis, the club is looking for defensive reinforcement and Mustafi and Evans seems to be the talk of the town. However, Chelsea may spoil the party for Arsenal by swooping for Mustafi.
The Blues themselves have been looking for reinforcement at the back considering that Kurt Zouma is injured for several weeks. Victor Lindelof had been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but the deal seemed to have suffered a blow. In turn, Chelsea are planning to deal a blow to Arsenal. It’s a merry-go-round of dealing transfer blows this season.
