English Premier League sides Manchester United and Chelsea are set to clash over the signature of Antoine Semenyo, according to Team Talks.

It was reported that the Red Devils were earlier ahead in the race for the star player but have been joined by the West London club who are willing to snap up his signature.

Antoine Semenyo is only 19 but has been able to attract this level of interest from these big Premier League guns because of his impressive performance for his side.

The Bristol City player is currently on loan at League Two side Newport County but he could be recalled immediately an offer is submitted after it has been claimed that his parent owners are ready to have him leave should the right offer be tabled for his signature.

Antoine Semenyo has scored a total of six goals across all competitions and handed two assists this season to add to his performance on the pitch.

However, the Blues are reported to be aware of the player’s availability and are ready to swoop in to secure his signature as early as in this winter transfer window.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are making plans to build a strong youth team so as to have a big future of talents that will help reduce their spending in the transfer windows.
