Chelsea and Arsenal back in for Roma defender Manolas

Chelsea and Arsenal could be back in the hunt for Kostas Manolas, according to reports.

Italian publication Gazzetta World suggests that Roma's impending loan deal for Inter Milan's Juan Jesus could see them offload Manolas this summer.

Brazilian defender Jesus is set to join for the 2016/17, with the view to a permanent deal, which has the Giallorossi preparing for the possibility of a Manolas sale.

News that talks between the Roman club and the Greek international have stalled have both the Blues and Gunners monitoring the situation, despite the fact 25-year-old Manolas is contracted at the Stadio Olimpico until 2019.
