Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard has impressed on loan at Premier League rivals Arsenal.
According to Daily Express, Chelsea and Liverpool are now plotting summer moves for the Norway international following his impressive performances for Arsenal.
Arsenal hope to sign Odegaard on a permanent deal this summer – although Madrid refused to include an option for the Gunners to buy him outright as part of the loan agreement.
There are talks Real Madrid might want to keep Odegaard next season but if the La Liga side agree to sell, Chelsea are ready to enter a bidding war for the Norwegian.
Arsenal reportedly fear they might lose Odegaard in a bidding war to Chelsea but Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly optimistic that the midfielder will prefer to join Arsenal following the faith the Gunners showed in him when Zinedine Zidane won’t play him at Real Madrid.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the Norway international.
