Defender admits he’s an Arsenal fan
Stuttgart defender wants a move to Chelsea, despite him being a big Arsenal fan.
The 22-year-old favours a move to West London rather than North.
The German international has revealed in the past that he is a big follower of Arsenal and is a keen admirer of manager Arsene Wenger.
Some of his footballing idols played for the Gunners, he said: “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.” he added.
Blues manager Jose Mourinho is looking for a defender this summer as he knows captain John Terry is not getting any younger and wants an understudy for the retired England international until he decides to hang up his boots.
However, Mourinho has his eyes set on several defenders including Belgium star Toby Alderweireld and Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane.
