Reports: Demba Ba has already passed Arsenal physical

ULTIMATE - Mike Hewitt

The rumored loan signing may be ready to go already.

There have been rumblings all day that Arsenal are trying to bring in Demba Ba from Chelsea to back up Olivier Giroud. The main holdup, reportedly, is the loan fee.

Well, if the following is true, it's possible the deal is closer than expected. Marca's deadline day liveblog says:

Según informa 'La Gazzetta dello Sport', Demba Ba ya ha pasado el reconocimiento médico con el Arsenal.

In English, Baxter.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport ', Demba Ba has already passed a medical with Arsenal.

It's a report of a report, so take it with a grain of salt. But I think Ba would be a good option up front, especially if other deals we've been talking about all day go through. But we'll see if anything actually comes of this. Right now, I'm ready to wait for a bit.
