Lyon defender Confirms Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in his services! Apparently…


Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the past couple of weeks, However, reports in Spain suggest Premier League teams are also keen to sign the French youngster.

According to the Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Chelsea have been admirers of Umititi for a while now, and have made previous attempts in the past to sign him.

Antonio Conte is said to be seeking defensive reinforcements, and the big boss Roman Abramovich is apparently trying to sign Umtiti for the Italian manager, according to the Mundo Deportivo.

The Blues have also apparently made their intentions very clear to his brother and agent, Yannick Umtiti.

However, Chelsea could face competition from their London rivals The Gunners, who have also apparently been following Umtiti closely in the past few months. great minds think alike? no?…OK, moving on.

Mundo Deportivo say Arsene Wenger ‘perfectly controls the French market’, and is very well aware of Umtiti’s skill set.

Wenger is said to be ‘lurking’ with very hi interest. that a bit sounds creepy.

BUT, he could favour a move over to Barcelona, and Mundo Deportivo truly believe he’s very keen on the transfer but also staying quiet so that report really cancels out itself…but what do I know. i don’t get paid thousands a week by big media outlets, so am I really qualified to make that judgement, probably.

Anyway, The 22-year-old is in for France national squad for the Euros following a crucial injury to Barcelona’s Jeremy Mathieu.
