Arsenal transfers: Demba Ba rubbishes Gunners reports
Arsenal transfers: Chelsea striker Demba Ba insists the Gunners have not made an approach for the Senegal man
Demba Ba has insisted that Arsenal haven’t made an approach for the out-of-favour Chelsea striker ahead of the January transfer window.
The Senegal international has struggled to secure regular first-team football this season under new Blues manager Jose Mourinho, who has preferred Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o.
People talk a lot about me joining Arsenal but there has never been an approach from them
The 28-year-old has scored once in eight Premier League appearances, and Ba reckons that he is still adapting to life at the west London side following his January move.
“People talk a lot about me joining Arsenal,” Ba is quoted as saying in the Sun on Sunday. “But there has never been an approach from them.
“There is nothing going on in this regard. Things are OK for me at the moment.
“It’s working, as the situation is turning around for me here bit by bit. I am getting more time on the pitch as a result of the injuries to our strikers Samuel Eto’o and Fernando Torres.
“You just need a bit of time to adapt when you change clubs. I’ve been in a process of adaptation while moving between West Ham, Newcastle and Chelsea.
“But as soon as I’m given the chance to prove myself, I take it so the fact that I’ve often been on the substitute’s bench is nothing serious.”
