Arsenal eyeing Chelsea superkid Nathaniel Chalobah
But Chalobah, who can play in central defence or midfield, faces a fight to force his way into the Blues¹ first team when he returns to Stamford Bridge with a host of big names ahead of him in the pecking order.
Arsenal fancy their chances of exploiting the situation and tempting Chalobah to make a shock switch across London by offering to fast-track him into their first-team.
The highly-rated England Under-21 international would be another addition to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger¹s British core.
But Chelsea are sure to fight tooth and nail to keep hold of one of their hottest prospects.
