Roma interested in Chelsea youngster Musonda

Roma have expressed an interest in signing Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda on loan.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been on loan at Real Betis, where he has struggled for fitness and form.

He impressed at the Spanish club, where former Chelsea star Gus Poyet is manager, during a loan spell last season.

Musonda, who has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues, is expected to be sent elsewhere on loan next month.

There have been reports in his native Belgium that Anderlecht are interested in taking him back to the club where he started his career.

Musonda was on Anderlecht’s books before being snapped up by Chelsea in 2012.
