Demba-Ba

Demba Ba had been yearning for a move to the Emirates stadium on transfer deadline day.

For much of Monday, the Gunners were in talks with Chelsea over a season-long loan deal for Ba, but unlike Victor Moses, who completed a loan move to Liverpool, Jose Mourinho’s side were unwilling to negotiate a deal which they believed would ‘strengthen’ Arsenal whom they consider as a major rival.

According to French journalist Matt Spiro, Demba Ba had verbally agreed to make a switch to north London which was still subject to official terms being signed by all three parties before the blues called the deal off.

But the blow of missing out on Ba could be softened by the marquee signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid for a club record transfer fee.
