Another Chelsea target for the defence that is set to join another side, this time a huge Blues rival: after the goalless draw against Leicester City last night, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed that the Gunners are close to sign a new player:

“Yes we are close [to another signing],” Wenger told BT Sport. 

“But I would say spending in itself is not a quality. Spending and buying the right players is a quality.

“I am a bit fed up to always respond to the same things. We look and analyse absolutely everything and we have to make the right decisions.”

The player should be Valencia centre-back and German international Shkodran Mustafi, for whom the Northern London side offered € 30m.
