Chelsea are retaining an interest in Arsenal target, midfielder Gianelli Imbula, ahead of a proposed summer move, according to the Express.
The 21-year-old has had a relatively quiet season in France by all accounts, but reports claim that this has not deterred Jose Mourinho. Despite coming close to making a £25million offer in January the Special One was said to be put off by Imbula’s attitude, but given time to consider his options, he may still make the move at the end of the season.
It’s believed that Chelsea scout Guy Hillion is particularly impressed with the young Marseille man’s development, having monitored him for most of this season.
Of course Arsenal are likely to also be keeping an eye on his situation, as Arsene Wenger has a proven track record of taking youngsters and helping them realise their potential.
At £25million he won’t come cheap, but he could prove one for the future for either Premier League side.
