Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway is reportedly preparing a loan move for Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah.
The 18-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Watford, is regarded as one of the brightest young players in England.
However, it is believed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is keen to send the teenager on another loan spell to gain first-team football experience.
According to The Sun, that has alerted Holloway, who is keen to add to his squad before the start of the new Premier League season.
A number of Premier League clubs are also reported to be monitoring proceedings.
