Chelsea are among clubs showing an interest in Nigerian prospect Henry Onyekuru, the Daily Mail say.

Arsenal are also said to be monitoring the the 19-year-old winger, who plays for Eupen in Belgium and was linked with a move to Celtic in January.

Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund, Monchengladbach and Lille are all apparently showing some interest in Onyekuru, who has scored 12 goals in 26 games this season.

Eupen are looking for £6m in order to sell him, it is claimed.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have been mooted as a potential destination for Real Madrid midfielder Isco. have suggested that Barcelona are interested in signing him, but The Sun believe the animosity between the two sides could leave the door open for the Blues and Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Blues boss Antonio Conte holds an interest in Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke, according to the Daily Telegraph.
