Not a headline I thought I would be writing this summer but there it is, Chelsea defender David Luiz and Crystal Palace winger Wilfrid Zaha could end up at Arsenal by 17.00 UK time tomorrow.
According to multiple reports Luiz has refused to train with Chelsea and is trying to force a move to Arsenal. Now, that is what you call out of the blue.
With regards to Zaha, you need to take a bit of a journey. The Crystal Palace winger has submitted a transfer request in order to force a move away from Selhurst Park. Everton want him but they also want Alex Iwobi, see where I am going with this?
So, Everton buys Iwobi, Arsenal use that money to add to their previous bid for Zaha and boom, Zaha is an Arsenal player.
Seem far fetched? Well, if I had to choose, Luiz to Arsenal looks the more far fetched in my book.
And yet Luiz could easily happen.
Obviously, Chelsea will play hardball and will stop any deal materialising or so you would think, they may easily take the attitude that the last thing they need right now is disruption in the dressing room.
The bottom line is that no matter how outrageous it may sound right now, David Luiz and Wilfrid Zaha could be teammates by this time tomorrow.
