Aaron Wan-Bissaka has established himself as one of the top prospects in the Premier League, with the defender having already made 28 starts for his side in the top tier.

However, the form of the 21-year-old has led to an interest in his services and according to The Mirror, Manchester United and Chelsea are ready to fight bitter rivals Manchester City for the youngster.

The Red Devils are looking for a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia, although Diogo Dalot has already been earmarked as the Ecuadorian’s successor.

Chelsea are happy to part ways with Davide Zappacosta, while the FA Cup holders will also be required to sign more homegrown players over the next two transfer windows.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka still has three-and-a-half years left on his deal at Selhurst Park and is the Eagles is looking solid in the defence having the best defensive record after the top six clubs in the Premier League.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea will launch a bid to sign the defender with the bench already reloaded at Stamford Bridge.
