German international makes it clear he wants Emirates Stadium move regardless of Stamford Bridge interest.
Chelsea’s hopes of landing impressive Stuttgart centre-back Antonio Rudiger may have been given something of a blow after the youngster professed his love for rivals Arsenal according to the Metro.
The 20 year old is considered one of the hottest prospects in Europe and is now a firm part of Joachim Low’s German national team set-up and had been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, perhaps seen as a long term replacement for veteran skipper John Terry, but comments made by the defender appears to suggest, none too subtly, that he’d much rather a move to the Emirates Stadium.
‘I have always dreamed of the Premier League,’ he told Bild.
‘I have been following Arsenal since the days of Henry and Bergkamp. I watch videos of Arsenal all the time on YouTube and I often wear the current Alexis Sanchez shirt.
‘My heart beats for Arsenal.’
