Clubs eyeing Chelsea and Arsenal youngsters ahead of summer window

Scouts from every top club in Germany will reportedly be jetting into London this week to watch Arsenal and Chelsea youngsters in action.

The Sun say the scouts will be looking “to find the next Jadon Sancho” after he made a big impression after being snapped up by Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City.

The matches which are apparently creating an interest are an Under-18 game between Arsenal and Chelsea on Friday afternoon followed by Chelsea’s Under-23s playing City’s that evening.

The Sun say “officials at German clubs are joking about filling up planes to fly over” and that every Bundesliga club will be represented at the games.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror say Arsenal are interested in Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico and Celtic’s Scotland left-back Kieran Tierney as a replacement for Nacho Monreal, who has been linked with Barcelona.

It follows reports that Barca are lining up veteran defender Monreal as back-up for Jordi Alba this summer.

The Mirror say Arsenal have concerns over Sead Kolasinac’s ability to play in a back four and are also looking at right-back options as it is unclear when Hector Bellerin will be back from his knee injury.
