Arsenal & Chelsea target considering January move

Javier Pastore (PSG)Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore is considering a January move away from the French capital, according to reports from The Express.

The Argentine was PSG’s first marquee signing under their Qatari owners in 2011, but has recently struggled to hold down a first-team berth alerting Arsenal and Chelsea.

New manager Laurent Blanc has a number of options at his disposal, which has led to the 24-year-old’s poor form seeing him drift away from the first-team.

As a result, he is believed to be considering a move away from the Parc des Princes in a bid to get his career back on track ahead do the 2014 World Cup.

Arsenal and Chelsea have both been interested for some time, and now could look to take advantage of the situation.

The Gunners are rumoured to have made enquiries regarding his availability over the summer, with Arsene Wenger a big fan of the playmaker.

Despite signing Mesut Ozil on deadline day, the Frenchman may be tempted to swoop for Pastore as well.

Chelsea may also up their interest, with the future of Juan Mata unclear.

The Spaniard is seen as surplus to requirements under Jose Mourinho, despite having been one of the club’s key men for some time.
