Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda is currently on loan at Real Betis, and he has caught the eyes of Italian club, Roma.

Roma are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Charly Musonda on loan in January, according to Sky Sports.

The Serie A side want the 20-year-old as a short-term replacement for Mohamed Salah, who will be travelling to Gabon to take part in the Africa Cup of Nations next month.

Musonda has barely featured for Real Betis this season. He has started only one game in La Liga this season unlike last season where he featured prominently. This might be a better deal for the young prospect and Chelsea.
