The fiery flames growing-ever-bitter-rivalry between London neighbours Chelsea and Arsenal need very little fanning, though the notion of a player getting between the two does exactly that.
For the punters in the Transfer Tavern, seeing either side linked with the same illustrious individuals adds further fuel to the fire.

The Argentine notched a whopping 36 goals in Serie A last term, proving himself as one of the most lethal marksmen on the continent for the Southern Italian outfit.
Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the former Real Madrid forward, though the 28-year old has insisted he remains calm over his future and will only decide after his international duty with Argentina in the Copa America.
‘All those people in Naples must remain calm,’ said the forward (quotes sourced by the Metro.)
‘I’m calm, but now I’m just thinking about the national team. We’re just one step away from the final.’
Would Higuain really be worth the huge amount of money Napoli would want for him?
