Chelsea refuse to budge on €30m Arsenal target, meeting scheduled

Now Antonio Conte can fully start life as Chelsea manager, the Blues in the Transfer Tavern this evening can really begin to get excited about life under the enigmatic Italian’s stewardship. 

Well, there were a few more exciting prospects for fans to get excited about than the notion of landing a Brazilian striker.

According to Sport Witness, the West London giants have tabled a €30m offer for the ind-demand Santos star Gabriel Barbosa, who has also been linked with growing ever bitter rivals Arsenal.

Still, the Stamford Bridge club are reportedly wary of being dragged into a bidding war over the 19-year old striker, with Juventus also understood to be keen.

While the Brazilian club are said to be willing to accept Chelsea’s bid, the player himself will apparently have a meeting with club officials and his parents to mull over a move to Europe.

Barcelona will also be told about any accepted bids, thanks to a clause in the deal they struck over Neymar back in 2013.

Is Barbosa worth the hype? Should he wait to move to Europe? Let us know below….
