We’ve had to break up a few scuffles in the Transfer Tavern in the past week between Chelsea and Arsenal fans- and it now seems our services might be required by higher authorities in the transfer window!
Italian publication CalcioMercato state that the Gunners are ready to go toe-to-toe with their London rivals for the signature of FC Sion striker Moussa Konate, with the reports being cited in The Daily Mirror.
Arsenal failed spectacularly with high-profile approaches for strikers over the summer, whilst Chelsea have concerns about their forward continent as Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao have failed to step-up in Diego Costa’s absence, with the Spaniard suspended after preferring to pick fights rather than score goals.
To both Premier League clubs the services of the 22-year-old Senegalese international will appeal, as he has banged in 21 goals in 35 appearances for FC Sion- a record we raise a pint to.
Arsenal & Chelsea fans, who will win this transfer battle?
