In what would surely be regarded as a twisted fate, Chelsea are on the verge of finalising a deal worth up to £34.2million for Roma defender Antonio Rudiger.

Sources in Italy suggested the centre-half completed a medical in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

However, Quotes have resurfaced from 2014 which Chelsea fans might want to pretend don’t exist.

The Germany international star – who is reportedly on the brink of signing for the Blues – told Bild in no uncertain terms he was a massive Arsenal fan.

“I have been following Arsenal since the days of Henry and Bergkamp,” he said.

“I have always dreamed of the Premier League.

“I watch videos of Arsenal all the time on YouTube and I often wear the current Alexis Sanchez shirt. My heart beats for Arsenal.”
