According to Daily Express, Chelsea have joined a number of top clubs in tracking the progress of former Barcelona academy winger Raul Moro.

The 18-year-old, who is currently with Lazio, has impressed at youth level for the Italian outfit but is yet to cement his place in the club’s first team.

Moro has made just one first team appearance for Lazio since joining from Barcelona and he is reportedly unhappy about his lack of opportunities in Lazio’s first team.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing the winger but the Blues face competition for his signature with ‘several European teams’ including a ‘top club’ in Italy also eyeing a move for the winger.

It remains to be seen whether or not Moro will be tempted into leaving Lazio this month, with a summer move likely to be the preferred option for the Serie A club.
