Arsenal are considering a bid to sign Charly Musonda from Chelsea, according to reports in France.

French outlet Foot Mercato, as quoted by the Daily Mail, is claiming that the Gunners are considering raiding their London rivals and trying to sign the 21-year-old.

The same report states that Musonda is currently “unhappy” at Chelsea and could be tempted into a move away from Stamford Bridge in search of regular first-team football.

Musonda has been limited to just four appearances in all competitions so far this season, and two of those have been from the bench.

The report also claims that Musonda turned down the chance to leave Stamford Bridge on loan in the summer because he wanted to fight for a first-team place in Antonio Conte’s side.

Musonda’s current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in 2019 and the player is reportedly keen on leaving Chelsea in January.

Chelsea are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League showdown against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they look to close the gap on leaders Manchester City.

The Blues are currently fourth in the Premier League and nine points behind Pep Guardiola’s pace-setters after 10 games of the new season.
