There are reports that claim Chelsea are finally ready to get Demba Ba off their books in January even if on loan. According to the reports, Chelsea will look to send the player on loan till the end of the season with whichever club signing him getting the opportunity of signing him on a permanent basis for just 5 million pounds. The Senegalese was reportedly close to signing for Arsenal in the last transfer window on a season long loan deal before Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho blocked the move.
However, Arsenal are not the only club interested in the player. There is also interest from his former club Newcastle United and Italian giants AS Roma as well as Atletico Madrid. He has so far only made 1 EPl appearance for Chelsea this season as he has fallen down the pecking order at Chelsea.
It however remains to be seen if Mourinho who turned us down in the last transfer window will be willing to allow him join us in January especially as we are now seen as a direct title rival.
