Hamburg SV and former Chelsea sporting director Frank Arnesen are not finished with Stamford Bridge yet. After plucking the likes of Manciene and Scala already, plus Gokhan Tore who Chelsea confirmed was leaving for Germany on Monday evening, the new Hamburg director is also looking at acquiring both John Obi Mikel and Kakuta.
Mikel did not have the best of seasons during the 2010/2011 campaign and many believe he has failed to prove his worth since arriving in 2006 despite over 150 appearances for the club. It was rumoured that Mikel would be on his way to Italy however with Arnesen still having ties to the West London club Hamburg may seem a more viable switch.
Kakuta has also not really impressed despite his age, having to watch from the stands whilst at Chelsea and not really making too big an impact whilst at Fulham on loan and it is believed that a bid of around £6m could tempt Chelsea into selling the 19 year old, especially with the emergence of Daniel Sturridge who did so admirably whilst on loan at Bolton Wanderers.
Arnesen does not apparently want to stop there either and will also try to snap up centre-back Jeffrey Bruma on loan for the Bundesliga side.
