Arsenal, Chelsea transfer target in demand as EPL side add their name to growing list of suitors

Posted by

Stoke City are the latest side to show an interest in FC Porto midfielder Giannelli Imbula, who appears destined for a move away from Portugal during the transfer window.

Despite interest from both Arsenal and Chelsea during the summer, Imbula moved to Porto during the summer when he left Olympique de Marseille.

Imbula was the midfield dynamo in Marcelo Biela’s impressive OM side that almost secured a return to the Champions League last season, but was one of many departees during the summer as the likes of Andre Ayew, Dimitri Payet and Andre-Pierre Gignac all left the club.

However, the midfield dynamo has struggled to assert himself in the Primeira League, and after only seven league starts for his new club, he looks set for a move away.
