Arsenal face battle to keep hold of ‘next Bukayo Saka’; Chelsea amongst clubs showing interest

Arsenal could be set to lose one of their latest rising stars to their London rivals Chelsea, according to reports.

Arsenal’s Khayon Edwards

That player? Khayon Edwards. Edwards is a product of Arsenal’s academy and has been impressing in their youth ranks of late.

The forward has had a superb 2021/22 campaign to date, scoring 14 times and setting up six more goals in 13 outings for Arsenal’s youth sides.

Edwards is a centre-forward by trade and this is where he plays most of his football. However, the teenager can also play on the left-wing or as an attacking midfielder.

So impressive has Edwards been of late, that Mikel Arteta has even allowed him to train with the first-team several times.

Arsenal could lose Edwards to Chelsea

Now though, Arsenal could be set to lose the rising star, potentially to a bitter rival.

As reported by the Daily Mail:

Arsenal are facing a battle to hold onto rising strike starlet Khayon Edwards amid mounting interest from clubs in England and abroad – including London rivals Chelsea.

It is added that the Gunners are yet to agree terms over a professional deal for the 18-year-old, who is now in the final year of his scholarship deal.

This is not for the want of trying, however. The north London outfit are said to have made a number of offers to Edwards, but so far none have been successful, which, in turn, is believed to have encouraged admirers of the striker.

Losing Edwards would of course be a big blow, especially given how highly he has been rated.

Football.london even recently went as far as to label him ‘the next Bukayo Saka’.
