Watford, Cardiff eyeing ex-Chelsea junior Ronald Sobowale

Former Chelsea junior Ronald Sobowale is attracting Premier League interest.

The Daily Mail says a number of high level English clubs are keeping tabs on Sobowale - the cousin of Bayern Munich star David Alaba.

Premier League sides Watford and Cardiff City, as well as Championship outfits Reading and Sheffield Wednesday, have expressed an interest in the 21-year-old striker.

Sobowale's father is the brother of Austria international Alaba's father and London-born Sobowale boasts the same Nigerian heritage as the left-back.

He has been playing regular football in non-league with south-west London clubs Molesey and Walton Casuals.

Sobowale was a contemporary of Tammy Abraham and Dominic Solanke in the youth ranks at Chelsea before being released at the age of 15 on account of his small stature.

But he has developed into a speedy and powerful forward and is now eager to secure a professional contract following recent trials with Cardiff and Barnsley.
