 Arsenal legend asks his former club to sign two Chelsea players in January to enhance title bid

 Arsenal legend asks his former club to sign two Chelsea players in January to enhance title bid

Emmanuel Petit has urged his former club Arsenal to acquire two Chelsea players when the January transfer window reopens.

The former Arsenal and Chelsea player believes that two players would be better suited at the Emirates than at Stamford Bridge.

The Premier League season is presently on hold due to the ongoing World Cup in Qatar, but will resume on December 26 with Arsenal hosting West Ham and Chelsea taking on Bournemouth the next day.

The team led by Mikel Arteta is five points ahead of second-place Manchester City, while Graham Potter’s Chelsea are buried in ninth position.

Both teams will have the opportunity to acquire new players when the January transfer market opens, according to Petit.

Petit told OddsBetting: “I’d love [N’Golo] Kante to go to Arsenal and I think he wants to stay in London, so they should take their chance.

“I also think Barcelona want to sign him in January but he suits Arsenal and they need a player who has a winning mentality.

“I’m surprised Chelsea do not want to give him a new contract but maybe they know something we don’t, perhaps a medical issue.

“Anyway, any club would be lucky to have Kante – it’s Kante!

“When you have guys like this – so humble and professional – you have to have leaders like this in the dressing room.”

Kante’s contract with Chelsea is set to expire in the summer of 2019, and Petit has advised Arsenal to sign Christian Pulisic owing to his lack of playing time with the Blues.

He added: “You could see with [Christian] Pulisic like he was playing with revenge at the World Cup.

“He was so good for the USA and he deserves to play regularly at another club.

“I think he’s the exact kind of player that Arsenal need. Now that Gabriel Jesus is out I think he’d be a great option.

“Just like Hakim Ziyech, you can see his head is not with Chelsea right now and seeing them both miserable – they don’t deserve it.

“Both players have played so well and I can see Milan probably want Ziyech and will bid for him in January.”
