Bursaspor striker Ali Akman, valued at around £3m by the Turkish club, is reportedly wanted by Chelsea and Arsenal among others.

Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly among the sides keen on signing teenage Bursaspor striker Ali Akman.

Akman is already part of the TFF First League side's first team at the age of 18 and has nine goals in 16 appearances this term.

The Turkey Under-21s international is said to have been approached by Red Bull Salzburg and Galatasaray in the past, but he remains a Bursaspor player for now.

According to the Daily Mail, though, that could soon change as English top-flight clubs have started to show an interest.

It is claimed that Chelsea and Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Akman, who could be available for as little as £3m as he has less than six months to run on his contract.

Bursaspor are ninth in the TFF First League standings, eight points off top spot.
