Chelsea starlet Josh McEachran is fielding interest from numerous European clubs, after contract talks stalled with the 18-year-old, the Daily Mail reports.

McEachran has finished his debut season at Chelsea with nine appearances for the club, and has shown enough potential to be included in the England under 21 side.

Arsenal are said to be interested in the wonderkid after McEachran was compared to Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere.


Manchester United have also been linked with McEachran, as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to lower the average age of the Manchester United squad.

And now Arsenal and Manchester United look to face competition from Hamburg, after former Chelsea director of football Frank Arnesen, who scouted McEachran, moved to the German outfit.

While the youngster was supposed to sign a contract with Chelsea in March, on his 18th birthday, talks were stalled as the side pushed for the title.

And now that Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked from Chelsea, talks over a deal have become all the more murky, leaving McEachran to consider his options.
