One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours has the club linked with the young Leicester City full back Ben Chilwell and after Arsene Wenger swooped this month to relieve them of their very successful head of technical scouting Ben Wrigglesworth, the east Midlands club must be wondering what they have done to make us pick on them. Having the cheek to challenge the mighty Arsenal for top spot might be the one.
Anyway, back to the young left back and I must say that I did not know a lot about the lad but I did watch the Foxes as they lost to our north London rivals Tottenham this week. While the Spuds dominated the FA cup replay and won quite easily against an under strength Leicester side, the big positive was the performance of Chilwell who looks to have some great skills and pace and caused the visitors some real problems.
The Mirror is reporting that the Gunners are not just interested but have actually made a bid. In fact the report claims that we have made a second bid for the talented 19-year old so it appears that Arsene Wenger is very keen on young Chilwell.
What I do not understand is why we are looking at a left back at all. With Monreal having just signed a new deal, is Wenger thinking of getting rid of Kieran Gibbs?
