Chelsea, Arsenal battle for West Brom superkid Isaiah Brown
West Bromwich Albion risk losing superkid Isaiah Brown in the summer.The Sun says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been tracking Brown, 16, and is ready to test Albion's resolve with a £1million bid in the summer.
But Chelsea are set to flex their muscles after watching Brown in action for West Brom's Under-21s and offer £2m.
The Blues are hoping their relationship with Baggies boss Steve Clarke - plus the success of their loan arrangement with Romelu Lukaku this season - will help swing a deal in their favour.
Wenger has been given glowing reports on the England Under-17 striker by Arsenal's head of development and former Albion coach Terry Burton.
Brown is currently on a two-year scholarship deal with Albion and Clarke hopes to persuade him to sign professional forms next year when he turns 17.
