Chelsea can be a frustrating club for players on the fringes of the the strongest XI

In the case of Kevin De Bruyne who struggling to get playing time he was eventually sold abroad only to return to the Premier League with a rival with great success.

History seems to be repeating with another player that is on the fringes of the Chelsea starting XI and has, according to reports, refused to sign a new contract after becoming frustrated at the lack of football is the brilliant young defender Ola Aina.

Tipped to be the next John Terry the 19-year-old Ola Aina has attracted the interest of Arsenal, Napoli and Bayer Leverkusen, West Ham and Everton

After refusing to sign a new contract the player has been demoted to the U21 setup and a potential exit.

A report in the Mirror claims that Arsenal would include the player in the first-team and add additional competition for centre-back and right-back contention.

The player has a degree of flexibility and can play centre-back or right-back with Wenger looking for a player to eventually replace the 30-year-old Mathiu Debuchy.

Arsenal will need to be quick if they want to secure his services with a long list of suitors looking to secure the player.
