London’s football giants, Chelsea, have expressed their interest in signing Arsenal’s young midfielder, Ethan Chidiebere Nwanneri. Nwanneri, who made his Premier League debut last September, became the youngest player to grace the Emirates Stadium at just 15 years and 181 days. The talented midfielder has already been an integral part of Arsenal’s U-18 and U-21 teams and has represented the England youth team on several occasions.
However, Chelsea’s interest in Nwanneri has raised eyebrows, particularly since the 16-year-old has not committed his future to Arsenal. According to reports, even Manchester City had a look at the youngster earlier in the year, but Chelsea are now keen on securing his signature.
It will not be the first time that players have crossed the divide between the London rivals. In recent years, several players have moved between Arsenal and Chelsea, despite being bitter rivals. The next player to do so might be Kai Havertz, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea.
Nwanneri’s future remains uncertain, but he has already caught the attention of several top clubs. The young midfielder’s versatility and potential make him a valuable asset for any team, and it remains to be seen where he will end up in the future.
