Chelsea transfer news – Arsenal see Mason Mount as Granit Xhaka’s replacement

News broke earlier that Arsenal were willing to listen to offers for Granit Xhaka in the summer. This means that the club has been on the lookout for a potential replacement, which means bad news for Chelsea.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are prepared to rival Liverpool for the signing of Mason Mount. Since Xhaka has been playing the box-to-box role, they see the Stamford Bridge want-away Mount as the ideal replacement in this role.

Chelsea transfer news – Swap deal means bad news for Mykhailo Mudryk

Having only just signed for the club in January, Mykhailo Mudryk is yet to hit the ground running. This is despite the hype which was placed on him by former club Shakhtar.

Well, a more recent emergence at Chelsea could spell bad news for the Ukraine international. According to Express, Chelsea would like to sign Rafael Leao from AC Milan in a deal which could see some of their fringe players heading to Italy.

Since Leao has been compared to Thierry Henry for his speed and dribbling style, he is ten times the player Mudryk is, meaning Mudryk would likely be a bench warmer for the whole season if Leao is signed.
