Chalobah Set For Chelsea Talks  (Sky Sports)

Nathaniel ChalobahChelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is due to hold contract talks with Antonio Conte in the next fortnight, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News HQ understands Watford, Southampton and Swansea are interested in signing the 22-year old, who has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal.

Chalobah made 15 appearances last season as Chelsea won the Premier League title and also played a key role in England reaching the semi-finals of the U21 European Championship this summer.

But his chances of playing a key role for Chelsea in the forthcoming campaign could be further reduced with the Blues closing in on the signing of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

Bakayoko, who helped Monaco win the French title last season, is set to undergo a medical later this week ahead of a £40m move to Stamford Bridge.

The deal had been slightly delayed as the 22-year-old has been recovering from minor knee surgery that he underwent at the end of last season.
