Edu Still Confident On €38m-Rated La Liga Star Transfer Despite Chelsea Interest

All of Arsenal’s putative right-back possibilities tested positive for COVID-19 or were not included in the matchday squad in Arsenal 5-0 win at Norwich City. While it did not influence the game, breaking up Ben White’s connection with Gabriel for important forthcoming matchups would be a concern.

Regardless, the club’s lack of depth (especially quality depth) beyond Takehiro Tomiyasu should be a source of concern. The chasm between Cedric Soares and you is wide. The distance between Calum Chambers and Ainsley Maitland-Niles has widened, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles appears to be on his way out on loan.

Arsenal will surely be connected with central midfielders and forwards in the January transfer window, given their problems in both areas of the play, but a reserve right-back should also be on the list.

Chelsea set to rival Arsenal for Sergino Dest

Sergino Dest

Sergino Dest of Barcelona is one name that could be handy, but news of an injury setback at Chelsea could undermine any chances Arsenal had of a free transfer.

Blues left-back Ben Chilwell will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to cure a significant knee ligament injury, it was announced on Tuesday afternoon.

The London club will require a short-term replacement, and rumors claim they are interested in acquiring Everton’s Lucas Digne or Barcelona’s Dest. There’s a rumor that they’re debating whether to sign a permanent deputy or a loan replacement, which might put an end to Arsenal’s interest in Dest.

Dest would have been – and still may be – a terrific choice for Arsenal, and a deal was certainly possible, since the Spanish press reports that Barcelona has listed both Frenkie de Jong and Dest, as well as goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, as being available for trade.

Sergino Dest

After Chilwell’s injury, the American international would most likely choose to join Chelsea over Arsenal because his game time would be more regular at Stamford Bridge for the remainder of the season at the very least.

Dest appears, at least on paper, to be the type of signing that would provide fantastic competition for Tomiyasu and provide a different, more dynamic alternative in that particular position, even at the £27m sum Transfermarkt values him at.
