Chelsea set to make approach for highly-rated Belgian forward

Arsenal and Chelsea are both interested in signing Anderlecht teenager Jeremy Doku, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Calciomercato, as it was quoted by The Sun, is reporting that both of the London clubs are interested in signing the youngster

The s story says that the teenager is on the list of the two London clubs in the lead to the January transfer window.

The youngster, who made his debut at 16, has made seven appearances for Anderlecht this term, starting three league games, but he is yet to score for the Belgian club.

Arsenal are likely to be linked with a whole number of players in the coming weeks and months as the build-up to the January transfer window is underway.

Chelsea FC, in the meantime, will have to wait to see if they’ll be able to sign new players in January. It all depends on whether their two-window transfer suspension handed down by Fifa will be overturned or not.

Arsenal are currently a point ahead of Chelsea FC in the Premier League table, with the Gunners in the third place and the Blues in fifth.

The north London side will play Sheffield United at Bramall Lane after the international break and Chelsea FC will host Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.
