​Chelsea battle Bayern Munich, AC Milan for Chievo teenager Vignato

Chelsea are interested in signing Chievo teenager Emanuel Vignato, per journalist Nicholo Schira.

The Italian sports journalist, who works for Gazzetta dello Sport, believes the midfielder is a key target for the Blues.

The 19-year-old would fit boss Frank Lampard's policy of attracting younger players to the club.

Vignato has youth call ups for both Brazil and Italy, but he has only played for the Italians in the past.

The attacking midfielder has managed three starts in Serie B, along with a couple of substitute appearances in the Coppa Italia, this season.

Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and AC Milan have also shown an interest in the youngster.
