Arsenal appear intent on avenging missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk by disrupting Chelsea’s own transfer plans.

According to the Evening Standard, Mikel Arteta’s employers have at least a trio of players on their radar who have also been linked to the Blues.

The Gunners would love nothing more than to get one over the London rival, after what happened with Mudryk earlier this month.

Chelsea signed the Ukrainian international from Shakhtar Donetsk rather out of nowhere, despite the forward seemingly destined to head for the Emirates.

He had been pursued by Arsenal throughout the winter window, only for Todd Boehly and his squad to beat them to the punch.

Yet, Edu and his own crew might be the ones laughing at the end of January.

Arsenal are after Chelsea target Moises Caicedo

The Evening Standard claim the Premier League leaders have turned their attention to Moises Caicedo and Amadu Onana.

Both midfielders are said to be under consideration by Chelsea.

Particularly Caicedo, who the Stamford Bridge chain of command are making a real effort to buy from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brighton have so far held firm in regards to the Ecuador international, but might wilter if Arsenal also enter the race.

Everton are also likely to succumb to the pressure from the capital clubs if they are serious in acquiring Onana.

The Toffees desperately need some cash, with the sale of the 21-year-old certainly not out of the equation.

One midfielder who is seemingly destined to depart his current destination is Declan Rice.

Chelsea have long been tipped to restore Rice to the ranks at Cobham, following his departure from there to West Ham United as an academy youngster.

Yet, relatively recently, claims have suggested that the Hammers captain is more likely to join Arsenal than his former team.

Whilst Edu is unlikely to land all three of Rice, Caicedo and Onana, getting just one of them will boil Chelsea’s blood for sure.
