Chelsea are reportedly ready to open transfer talks with winger Charly Musonda, who has been promoted to the first-team squad this season.

Chelsea have reportedly indicated that they want to start negotiations over a new contract with Charly Musonda.

After gaining first-team experience on loan with Real Betis, the former Blues academy player has been promoted to the senior setup at Stamford Bridge and has made three appearances since the start of the campaign.

The 20-year-old still has just under two years remaining on his current deal but according to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea want to press ahead with handing the Belgian youngster a long-term deal.

While head coach Antonio Conte has plans to use Musonda as a squad player, it has been suggested that Chelsea are eager to keep the prospect out of the reaches of the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal, who have previously shown an interest in his signature.

Last week, Musonda netted his first goal for Chelsea in a 5-1 victory over Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup.
