Arsenal are being linked with a move for Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda.

The Sun have picked up on a report claiming that Musonda is growing frustrated by his lack of first-team chances at Stamford Bridge and could leave.

It comes after French publication Foot Mercato claimed that Arsenal are interested in signing the Belgian if he continues to be overlooked at Chelsea.

Amid continued speculation over Antonio Conte’s future as Chelsea manager, the Daily Mirror say he continues to have the support of the board.

This week’s Champions League defeat against Roma has led to more reports that Conte’s future at the Bridge could be in doubt.

But the Mirror believe Chelsea are ready to back the Italian and bring in new signings for him in January, with a move for Juventus wing-back Alex Sandro said to be likely.

Meanwhile, The Times say Conte is worried that Chelsea are short of leaders in the dressing room as a result of the club’s recent transfer dealings.

And the Daily Telegraph say Chelsea’s medical staff with try to push N’Golo Kante into returning to action against Manchester United on Sunday.

Chelsea have struggled badly without the French midfielder, who has been sidelined since recently suffering a hamstring injury while on international duty.
