Arsenal goes shocking big money move for sensational Cole Palmer

Slowly as the transfer season gets into the middle of June, the bigger names switching clubs come in. But nothing as surprising takes place when a transfer to direct rivals shows a possibility about a player who is in their best form. Arsenal have created a frenzy with their approach to in-form sensation Cole Palmer of Chelsea. According to reports, a fee of 80 million pounds has been proposed for the English international. Cole Palmer has been instrumental to a struggling Chelsea side under Pochettino. He can be said to be the sole reason Chelsea has the remote hope of playing in a European competition. Palmer is already a fan favourite and has very recently made his move to Stamford Bridge from Manchester City. A sudden move to the other side of London in such a short stint wavers questions around the world of football.

Chelsea to Arsenal for £80m: Cole Palmer shocks the world

The Chelsea star is considered a natural heir to legend Frank Lampard and has given fans high hopes in dire circumstances. In his debut season, Palmer has contributed 22 goals and assists in 34 appearances. Arteta’s Arsenal is a good destination for Palmer, but surely Chelsea needs him more. Moreover, Enzo Maresca is deeply relying on the English lad. He has had full faith in him since their time at Manchester City. Arsenal’s interest in Palmer is possible due to Benjamin Sesko’s deal failing to commemorate. With the Slovenian renewing his contract with RB Leipzig, the Gunners face a new dilemma with a new forward. 

Edu, the sporting director of Arsenal, is always keen on bolstering the quality of the squad. He will leave no stone unturned to make this deal happen, and we have seen this before during the Declan Rice parenphernalia. While Palmer and other English players are getting ready for the Euros, Edu is surely cooking something for the upcoming season. The wise sporting director is fully aware of Chelsea’s FFP squeeze, and he is trying to tempt Chelsea with the high sum of money. 

Although Palmer has quite a long contract and is very much hinged on the Stamford Bridge, it is unusual for him to leave. It is possible that we might end up seeing another saga between the London clubs. But this, for now, does not solidify anything. Arsenal are a title contender and are keen on winning it next season. Meanwhile, Chelsea is also preparing for the same. So selling Cole Palemer to direct rivals will not be a wise idea.
