Demba Ba a Target For Arsenal After Chelsea Say He Can Leave Stamford Bridge: Nightly Soccer Report

demba ba Demba Ba a Target For Arsenal After Chelsea Say He Can Leave Stamford Bridge: Nightly Soccer Report

Chelsea striker Demba Ba has been told that he can leave Stamford Bridge tomorrow, but whether he’ll move to Arsenal or another club is the question that needs to be answered.

The Telegraph newspaper reports that Arsenal may be Demba Ba’s destination despite the fact that the article contains no source or tidbit of information leading the reader to think that Arsenal is his destination. All the article says that Arsenal are interesting in making a deadline day move. To be honest, I’m sure practically any club in the Premier League would be interested in signing the clinical striker.

If Arsenal is interested, the Gunners would be a brilliant fit for Ba. He’d have more opportunities to play in the side at the Emirates Stadium compared to other clubs. Plus, he would give Arsenal and Arsene Wenger plenty of options to consider throughout the course of the season.

What’s your opinion about Demba Ba possibly going to Arsenal? Should Wenger sign him? And if so, who do you rate as the better striker — Olivier Giroud or Ba? Have your say in the comments section below.

    Defoe to West Brom needs to happen. Like yesterday.

  2. IndoGooner says:

    No, I don’t think that’s a good idea. I prefer to promote Akpom rather than to pay high bill for Ba. Since the first time chelsea are interested with him, I really thought that chelsea made a mistake. So, why the hell we like to follow the same mistake??

  3. Steven P. says:

    I thought Newcastle were going to go for him? I guess anything can happen and we’ll find out soon enough

    ba? no! i dont need ba. i hav giroud nd walcot both better dan ba. i could hav prefer torres. haha did i say i hav giroud? hmm is a case of d rejected stone bcomin d piller

    • Ty says:

      Surely you are not stupid enough to realize having 1 decent forward is not enough. Walcott through the middle is not really viable and Arsenal need more cover than Yaya Sanogo.

      @reaaljay, there is an issue with your keyboard.

      It’s forcing you to type in a language not from this Earth – a cross between Martian and a dog barking.
