Chelsea are reported to be battling with Arsenal for the signing of yet another player.
This time Porto’s teenage striker Andre Silva is said to be a target for both clubs, who have been linked with several other players including Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira.
The Sunday People say Silva, 19, wants move to England when his contract expires in the summer.
It is claimed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is leading a race to sign him and that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has also registered an interest.
Meanwhile, Real’s former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has played down reports that Khedira could move to Stamford Bridge or Arsenal in January.
Khedira’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and there has been speculation that he could be sold when the transfer window reopens.
But the Spanish press quote Ancelotti as saying: “We still have until June to renew his contract.
“I think the club intends to renew the deal and if he does not want to then he will remain here until to the end of season.”
