Chelsea centre back William Gallas IS rejecting a new deal with the Blues and Arsenal have shown interest according to the players agent.
It was only a couple of weeks ago that Arsene Wenger stated if he could find a centre back you could dual as a left back, then he'd be back in the transfer market. Well it now appears such a player has become available, and he's a very good player.
Gallas' agent Pierre Frelot said: 'William has decided to leave. Arsenal are interested and we have to find an agreement with Chelsea, even if I know they will do everything to keep him. Chelsea have made us a very good offer to sign a new contract but William would like to go and we will see what happens. However, I don't know if Chelsea will agree to sell him to one of their greatest rivals.'
His comments confirm a couple of things:-
1) William Gallas no longer wants to play for the Blues and with one year left on his contract a deal shouldn't be too difficult to broker. The Chelsea boss himself said yesterday that the only reason Gallas is still a Chelsea player is because no-one has made an offer.
2) That Arsenal have shown interest and maybe a part exchange deal with Ashley Cole, who Moaninho has openly expressed an interest in (in more ways than one) could possibly be on the cards.
3) Reading between the lines of Gallas' agents statement, Frelot has practically told us that should Arsenal lodge a bit (or indeed negotiate a part ex deal for Cole) then it appears Gallas would be willing to enter into talks with the Gunners.
The possibility of this transfer would have most Gooners drooling as a back four of Eboue, Toure, Gallas & Clichy would certainly be one of the best around.
