Vinicius Junior has been linked with a sensational move to London clubs Chelsea and Arsenal in the past season but the English sides have reignited their interest in the winger.

Real Madrid spent £39million to sign the Brazilian attacker from Flamengo in 2018 and placed a £630m release clause in his contract.

But that did not stop Paris Saint-Germain in making a move for the pacy winger last summer which did not materialize.

Chelsea are recently the English club to have made contact with the Los Blancos star for a possible summer move, according to Spanish news media outlet AS.

The Blues were understood to have approached Vinicius in November 2019 before the pandemic but turned their attention to signing Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.

Vinicius played 38 matches in all competitions for Real Madrid this term provided five assists as well as scoring five goals.
