Chelsea among clubs keen on Atalanta midfielder

Chelsea are among clubs showing an interest in Atalanta midfielder Bryan Cristante.

The 23-year-old has scored 12 goals in 44 appearances this season and earned a first cap for Italy in October.

Arsenal are also monitoring Cristante as well as Juventus and Borussia Dortmund.

He came through Milan’s youth ranks and was snapped up by Benfica for just under £5m in 2014.

Atalanta took him on loan last year and have since signed him on a permanent deal.
