We've been all over the map with this one today, haven't we? Arsenal have interest. Arsenal don't have interest. Chelsea have interest in a loan. Chelsea have no interest in a loan. Chelsea only want a permanent deal. Chelsea want to keep Essien. I'm so confused. Luckily for me (and all of you in turn), it can still be a little more confusing:

Oh well, at least we've got something to talk about...
