Arsenal are to go head-to-head with Turkish giants Galatasaray for the £2million signing of Eray Comert, according to reports.

Eray-Comert-1

The FC Basel defender has caught the eye this season with the club in contention for the Swiss League title and on the cusp of the Europa League quarter-finals at the time of the suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Basel have managed to keep 14 clean sheets in 2019-20 and Comert has played an integral role in their solidity at the back, something Arsenal have lacked on a number of occasions this season.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
