Chelsea appear to be winning the race to sign Southampton left-back Luke Shaw as the defender has told friends he wants to join the west London outfit.
The Daily Express claim the 18-year-old has spoken of his desire to join the club he supported as a boy over any other potential suitor.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all reportedly keeping tabs on Shaw - but look set to miss out on the highly-rated full-back.
Any potential deal for Shaw, who is valued at £30million, is likely to take place at the end of the season as Southampton have made it clear that none of their stars will be leaving before the summer.
A deal at the end of the season would suit Chelsea as current left-back Ashley Cole is out of contract in the summer.
Manchester United have reportedly turned their attention away from Shaw as they know the England Under-21 starlet is desperate to seal a move to Stamford Bridge.
