Frank Lampard won’t stop signing fresh legs to Chelsea as the manager is reportedly considering a bid for former Nottingham Forest defender, Anel Ahmedhodzic worth £6.9million.

SunSport citing Swedish outlet Kvallposten claim that several European clubs are desperate to sign the 21-year-old centre back.

The Blues are reportedly considering a bid of £6.9million for the youngster which will also see him sign a five-year deal.

Ahmedhodzic’s current contract with Swedish outfit Malmo will run until the summer of 2023, but he split his last season campaign between the club and a loan spell at Danish side Hobro.

His return to Malmo saw him handed a start during their Europa League clash when they lost to Wolfsburg in February.

He is now a regular starter at the club scoring twice in 24 appearances as Malmo continue to chase them this season.

The defender’s blistering form earned him a call-up to the Swedish national team for January, but despite appearing in a friendly against Moldova, he switched allegiance to Bosnia for October's Euro 2020 play-off.

Chelsea have a huge number of defenders already at Frank Lampard's disposal, with Ahmedhodzic likely to join the club's loan army if he signs.

Centre-backs Ethan Ampadu, Jake Clarke-Salter, Marc Guehi, Matt Miazga and Malang Sarr are all currently out on loan from the Premier League club.

On the other hand, Manchester United are set to trigger a £25m release clause for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

The 28-year-old's contract is due to expire in less than 18 month and Tottenham could look to sell their star centre-half at the end of the campaign.

Mikel Arteta’s men are looking at a possibility of bringing the 20-year-old to the Premier League in January according to reports from SunSport.

The Gunners failed in their bid to sign Lyon star, Houssem Aouar during the summer transfer window and now the Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Szoboszlai has caught their eye.
