£8m Arsenal & Chelsea target wants PL move

Arsenal and Chelsea midfield target Gilbert Imbula wants a move to the Premier League, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror claims the £8million-rated French U21 international is eager to swap Guingamp for England, and has been watched by a number of top clubs.

Gunners chief Arsene Wenger has been monitoring the player for months, the paper claims, but the Blues and Lyon have also been keeping tabs on the 20-year-old.

Arsenal are eager to strengthen in defensive-midfield position, and have money to spend this summer as the manager looks to re-shape the squad for a title challenge.

Imbula helped his side gain promotion to Ligue 1 last season, and would also represent another long-term acquisition for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have a new manager in the shape of Jose Mourinho, and have been linked with much bigger name signings like Xabi Alonso.

However, the Blues do have some of Europe’s finest young talent on their books at Stamford Bridge, with Romelu Lukaku, Thiabut Courtois and Eden Hazard just three of their top talents under 23.

But, if Chelsea do want to add Belgian-born starlet, they will face competition from their capital rivals.
