Chelsea, West Ham watching RB Leipzig left-back Matthew Bondswell

Chelsea and West Ham United are watching RB Leipzig left-back Matthew Bondswell.

Teenager Bondswell moved to Germany from Nottingham Forest back in 2018, when he joined up with the Leipzig academy at the Red Bull Arena, says the Telegraph.

The 18-year-old joined Dutch second division side FC Dordrecht in August this year on a season-long loan in search for regular game time.

Chelsea and West Ham are keeping tabs on Bondswell's situation ahead of a possible return to his homeland in January.

However, the Premier League sides will face competition from Sporting Lisbon, who are also reportedly admirers of the young left back.

Bondswell is viewed as a player who has the potential to make it in the Premier League and provide competition with those at left-back.
