Arsenal and Chelsea face a fight from Serie A if they want to land the next exciting young player emerging from the youth ranks in Holland, being dubbed the 'new Arjen Robben'.

According to Calciomercato, new AC Milan manager Clarence Seedorf is very keen on young star Richairo Zivkovic and is considering a summer move for him.

The report also claims the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Barcelona are also taking an interest in the 17-year-old, who has become a regular in the FC Groningen first team this season and has been very impressive.

Arsene Wenger already has a number of talented youngsters in his Arsenal squad, most notably German 18-year-old Serge Gnabry, but there is a shortage of wingers coming through the ranks.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have changed transfer policies in recent years and manager Jose Mourinho has see more promising young players brought in over more established and experienced stars.

However, Seedorf's legendary status in European football, and him also being Dutch, may make it difficult for the clubs out of Emirates Stadium and Stamford Bridge to persuade Zivkovic his future lies in London and the Premier League.
