Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed today –

Rennes’ teen sensation Desire Doue is rated a target for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta – as well as Manchester United.

The Gunners will be one of the sides that are expected to do alot of transfer business over the summer window as Mikel Arteta will be keen to keep on adding to the squad – and there has been some big names linked.

However – ARSENAL have a history of signing some of the best young talent around in the game – and Doue is reportedly a player that the Arsenal coaching staff have been keeping an eye on over the past 12 months.

Sport Zone say Arsenal have held “initial contacts” with the French midfielder’s representatives after a season in which he has notched four goals and four assists in 31 Ligue 1 games.

Team-mate Baptiste Santamaria reckons the Under-23 international already dreams of joining a European giant and is the best young player he’s ever seen.

Santamaria said: “He’s a very talented player with a great sense of football. But he’s still young.

“He’s a player who aspires to go to the biggest clubs.

When he becomes more consistent, he’ll be unplayable. For his age, he’s the most gifted youngster I’ve seen in my career.”

Look, we don not know much about Doue and what he could bring to Arsenal in the future – but we are sure that the ARSENAL coaching staff have done their homework on the lad and believe he may be good enough for a move to the Emirates.

It will be a massive move for the lad too – and if a move is done – it will probably be a dream come true to sign for a club like Arsenal.


Pundit Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that he would be a perfect signing for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta knows that he needs to sign his very own Erling Haalnd if ARSENAL really want to beat Man City to that premier League title next season – and the likes of Zirkzee has been mentioned as a possible signing for the Gunners.

The Young man has had a brilliant season with Bologna this campaign and is heavily tipped to make a move to one of the big European clubs – especially as he he has a £40 million release clause in his contract.

Di Marzio says that Zirkzee would be an interesting signing as someone with not a lot of experience, and believes he would be “perfect” for Arsenal and confirms he is “on their list”.

“For the way Arsenal play, I think Joshua Zirkzee could be perfect for them,” the Italian said. “I know he’s on their list, but I don’t know if he’s the priority.

“He is also on the radar of Juventus and Milan, and at the moment he is the perfect young striker for all of them.

“But Zirkzee has a strange situation with his contract, as Bayern have the option to buy him back for 40 million euros, but if Bologna sell him to other clubs, they will only get 60 percent of the transfer fee.

“It depends on whether Bayern decide to buy him back or not. It depends on who decides to sell him – Bayern or Bologna. So it is a difficult situation in this matter.”

If Zirkzee is the striker that ARSENAL wants to bolster their attack next season – he would be a very good signing for the long-run – but he could struggle to adapt to the Premier League.

Arsenal need someone that can score 25-30 goals a season and the young man does not give the club that.


Pundit Charlie Watts has claimed that it is much more likely that Arsenal sign Benjamin Sesko in the summer and not Victor Gyokeres.

ARSENAL spent heavily in the summer transfer window, breaking their own transfer record to sign sign a number of players that they feel will help drive the club into a new era of winning trophies.

However – there are many out there that believe the club are still lacking a striker to score the goals on a regular basis, and Gyokeres is a player that has been linked with a move to the Emirates.

However – amid all the speculation, Charles Watts, speaking on his YouTube channel,, says a player like Benjamin Sesko, valued at £55m, is more likely to sign for Arsenal this summer

“There are other forwards linked too such as Gyokeres. He would be far more expensive than Benjamin Sesko. From some of the discussions I’ve had in the last couple of days I’m not sure Gyokeres will happen or could happen,” Watts said.

“I’m not sure we’ll see a huge transfer this summer in terms of financial outlay, I think we will see some good transfers for Arsenal, but I’m not sure we’ll see someone along the lines of another Declan Rice pushing the £100m mark which Gyokeres will.

“You never know in football, but I think Arsenal’s focus will be spreading the cost around, that’s why I think Sesko may be ahead of Gyokeres in the pecking order.”

Sesko has been in blistering form this season and is making a real name for himself – but to be honest – at this stage of his career he does not need to move on after one decent season.

We are not 100 per cent on who ARSENAL should sign – but they certainly need a striker that will be able to come in and play at a very high level ASAP.
