Arsenal striker asked to move to Chelsea in January

Chelsea and Arsenal are preparing to face up against each other in a final once again today.

The Blues face The Gunners in the FA Cup final at Wembley stadium to conclude this seasons domestic competitions.

One player lining up for Arsenal will have a feeling of guilt today, if the latest reports are true.

The Daily Mail claim that club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang asked his agents to contact Chelsea over a move to the club in January.

Chelsea conducted talks with the striker but any potential move broke down due to his high wage demands.

So it could have been very different for Aubameyang today and it appears like he was close to sporting the royal blue of Chelsea rather than the red of London rivals Arsenal.

But that wasn’t to be, and the Arsenal skipper will be hoping to lift some silverware in front of the team mates that he almost joined!
