Just when we thought Demba Ba was on his way to Arsenal, Paris St Germain decide to throw a spanner in the works – and it looks like the Senegal striker is re-re-thinking (not a typo) his options once again.
Arsenal were thought to be frontrunners for the Newcastle forward’s signature, with the 27-year-old supposedly signing for us on the 1st of January for £7.5 million.
However, mega-rich PSG have newly expressed their interest in Ba, who has netted 11 goals in 19 Premier League appearances for Newcastle
The Senegal international said:
‘I look at PSG as a fan, as a supporter.
‘I have never concealed my attraction to the club as a fan, which I have been since I was little.
‘Now they [PSG] are doing big and important things, and have big plans for the future.’
‘Of course I’d like to play in the colours of a team I support.’
So it looks like Ba will be on his way to PSG when they do eventually come knocking, which will undoubtedly come as another blow to Arsene Wenger, who is supposedly looking to bolster his attack over the winter period.
On to the next name on your list Arsene.
