Arsenal and Chelsea among clubs linked with Charlton youngster Konsa

Arsenal and Chelsea are among a clutch of clubs monitoring Charlton’s 19-year-old defender Ezri Konsa, according to the Daily Mirror.

The report claims Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City have also watched Konsa this season, while Celtic have also become interested.

The teenager was an unused substitute in Charlton’s 3-0 defeat at Swindon on Saturday, when Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers was in attendance watching his son Anton play for the Robins.

Arsenal are also being linked with Italy Under-17 international Andrea Pinamonti and Roma midfielder Leandro Paredes.

TalkSport, picking up on a report in La Gazzetta dello Sport, suggests the Gunners, Liverpool and Manchester City all hold an interest in Pinamonti, who has scored 10 goals in just seven appearances for Inter Milan’s academy side this season.

The Daily Mirror, meanwhile, says Arsenal have made contact with Roma over Argentine midfielder Paredes, 22.

And French media outlet Mercato 365 claim West Ham and Tottenham have opened transfer talks over Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal.

The 24-year-old is out of contract next summer and the report, picked up by the Essex Chronicle, says his club may choose to cash in on him in January.
