Grasshoppers fullback Allan Arigoni: Nice knowing Chelsea, Barcelona watching

Grasshoppers right-back Allan Arigoni has welcomed interest from Chelsea and Barcelona.

The 21 year-old was linked with both giants last week.

And Corriere Del Ticino asked Arigoni what he made of the links: “It's nice to know that such big teams are watching me.

“But I'm focusing on Grasshoppers, the recovery of the championship, the trip to Chiasso. My focus is there.

“One thing I can say anyway - as the news came out, my teammates started making fun of me, both in the locker room and on the field.

“But I certainly don't let it go to my head. I remain a person with my feet on the ground.

“I keep my path tight. And I think of Grasshoppers. What will happen next, well, I can't predict it."
