Chelsea have joined crowded race for Serie A No.22 forward

By | February 8, 2019

The Premier League side Chelsea have entered the hunt to sign AS Roma youngster Nicolo Zaniolo, according to the latest reports in the Italian press.

An Italian daily newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, as quoted on Sport Witness, state that the Blues are the latest club to express an interest in the player.

After enjoying a breakthrough campaign in Rome, a host of top European sides have been linked with moves to sign the talented attacking midfielder.

Arsenal were heavily connected with a move to sign the star during the January window after being so impressed with his displays while the club were in Italy, scouting his team-mate, Turkish ace Cengiz Under.

The report also adds that La Liga giants Real Madrid, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Serie A leaders Juventus are also keeping a close eye on the star’s development in Serie A.

Nicolo has only started a dozen league matches this season, but he is quickly emerging as one of AS Roma’s hottest prospects and the Rome-based outfit will undoubtedly face a fight to keep him beyond the summer transfer window.
