According to the Observer, English Premier League giant Chelsea have to battle three top European clubs, Arsenal and Barcelona for the signature of highly rated 22-year-old Sofiane Boufal.
It’s believed that London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are both in contention to sign Sofiane Boufal from French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille but face stiff competition from Spanish giants FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid for the Morocco striker.
The player who was signed by Lille last January for just €4m is now valued €25m. This is a typical representation of how crazy money has become in football
It’s yet to be known where the player will be heading to this summer, as report states that the player is regarded by his club as likely to leave Lille this summer
The powerful attacking midfielder who was born in France but plays international football for Morocco may prefer the pace and the promise of first-team action that could be more likely to come with a move to England despite interest from Spanish giant FC Barcelona.
It’s gotten to a situation where Arsene Wenger needs to wake up to reality and learn how to win bidding wars with other top European clubs if he is ready to win laurels.
