Arsenal, Chelsea And Barcelona: All linked with one Midfielder

Lille offensive midfielder Sofiane Boufal is being linked with a myriad of clubs, as Arsenal, Chelsea, Barcelona and Athletico Madrid are all  interested in the 22-year-old.

The Morrocan international, who won ‘Best African Player’ in Ligue 1 last year, is valued at €25 million by Lille but given the interest from such wealthy clubs, the transfer fee is likely to be much more than that.

The interest from Arsenal and Chelsea is hardly surprising, given recent developments in the rumours that linked Jamie Vardy and Radja Nainggolan to the clubs respectively. Both deals now appear to be off the table, and so the two London giants will be keen to sign Boufal to bolster their attacking options.
