Chelsea are insisting Watford cough up a sizeable loan fee for Nathaniel Chalobah.

The Mirror says the Stamford Bridge outfit are digging in their heels as Watford want to contribute less towards his wages than they did last year.

Chalobah has signed a £30,000-a-week contract at Chelsea in the summer and they are looking for a big sum from Watford.
