#TransferDeadlineDay: Arsenal makes loan bid for Chelsea striker Demba Ba; ...eyes PSG's Pastore

Arsenal have reportedly made a £1.5million loan move for Demba Ba but Chelsea are looking more in the region of £3m.

Ba is a deadline-day target for the Gunners as Arsene Wenger looks to add another striker to his squad before the transfer window closes.

Arsenal have also made an ambitious enquiry concerning Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Javier Pastore.

Jose Mourinho is however reluctant to let Ba leave for one of their top-four rivals.

Chelsea have had interest from around Europe in the Senegal star and would consider selling permanently for offers in the region of £10m.

Newcastle had made a £1m offer for 28-year-old Ba to return for the season but Roma and Rubin Kazan are also interested while other Premier League sides, such as West Ham, will consider a move if they can sell others.

If Arsenal complete the deal for Mesut Ozil it may well attract more players to move before the end of the transfer window.
