Chelsea ‘targeting shock Emile Smith Rowe transfer from Arsenal as well as TWO other former Premier League stars’ | The Sun

CHELSEA are targeting a shock move for Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, it's claimed.

The Blues reportedly also have their eyes on a pair of former Premier League stars as they look to sign a new attacker.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are understood to want to bring in a new forward before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Friday.

According to the Daily Mail, Smith Rowe is one of the players they have identified as a potential signing.

Chelsea are said to be considering a move for the Arsenal playmaker.

Barcelona pair Ferran Torres and Raphinha – who both previously played in the Premier League – are also reportedly being eyed by Chelsea this week.

However, the report adds that their interest is not yet at an advanced stage.

Smith Rowe has yet to feature in the Premier League for the Gunners this term, but still has three years left on his contract.

Injuries limited his opportunities last term, with a groin problem alone keeping him out for two months.

The 23-year-old told SunSport last month that he is ready to fight for his place in the team, though, after the signing of Kai Havertz.

Ferran Torres could be available to Chelsea, however, with Barcelona reportedly open to a £35million deal back in June.

Torres previously spent 18 months at Manchester City, scoring 16 league goals and winning the title in 2021.

As for Raphina, both Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with the Brazilian this summer.

He only joined the Spanish giants from Leeds last summer but has missed their last two matches through suspension.

Both he and Torres have four years left on their current deals, but could still seal a late move to Stamford Bridge.
