Arsenal and Chelsea both want to sign Atletico Madrid’s young Spaniard Saul Niguez, and are set to compete for his signature, reports the Mirror.
The 19-year-old Spaniard is predominantly a centre-back, but has been deployed in an anchoring midfield role this term because of his impressive technical ability. Niguez has started 16 matches so far this season, although his loan side Ray Vallecano currently lie in the relegation zone in Spain.
Arsenal were apparently readying a bid, although Chelsea have now sent scouts to watch the teenage prodigy.
Niguez is extremely technically composed, meaning his future could lie in midfield rather than the defensive role he’s played in during his youth career.
He’s strong in the air, regularly intercepts possession and can tackle, meaning he has all the attributes to perhaps succeed as a Premier League midfielder.
