Demba Ba: Where will the in-demand Chelsea striker end up?

The Gunners were looking to the Senegal international to provide them with some depth up front, with Tottenham also reportedly considering a season-long loan move for him.

While Spurs remain in the hunt to sign Ba, Arsenal's interest appears to have cooled and there are reports that Chelsea are not keen to have him playing for a team they see as a threat in the Premier League table.

The Blues are looking for a £3m loan fee for Ba, who has scored six goals since his arrival at the club in the January transfer window.

There has been plenty of interest from elsewhere in the 28-year-old striker, who has been linked with a return to West Ham, and been targeted by Napoli and Valencia as well.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
