Arsenal, Chelsea run rule over Leny Yoro

Arsenal and Chelsea’s scouts were in attendance to watch Leny Yoro in action at Villa Park, sparking rumours of a move for the 18-year-old.

According to HITC, Arsenal and Chelsea had scouts watching Leny Yoro in action for LOSC Lille against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Thursday; the 18-year-old Real Madrid target has come in for high demand ahead of the summer, as the teenager is ready to leave Lille in the summer for a new challenge elsewhere.

Arsenal-Chelsea scout Leny Yoro

Many of the top English clubs are eying top young talents ahead of the summer, with Leny Yoro a name on everyone’s shortlist. Arsenal are among the sides chasing the teenager as Mikel Arteta seeks a cover and competition for his central defence. The 18-year-old has put in some mature performances this season, which has made him a big target.

Chelsea are also in the race, but believe Real Madrid might have the edge in the pursuit of the teenager. The Blues have been chasing some of the top young talents from around for quite some time and may have had firm sights on the Lille star ahead of the summer window.

Yoro was in action in the Europa Conference League quarterfinal clash with Aston Villa in England. Arsenal and Chelsea scouts were present for the game and to specifically watch the 18-year-old Real Madrid target in action. He is ready to leave Lille in the summer and also has a contract that will end in 2025.

Hence, it’s up to the player to put himself in the market, with Lille having a major say in what he does with his career from this point onwards. Arsenal and Chelsea may have a big chance, but their big issue is the interest from Real Madrid, a club the player reportedly favours ahead of everyone else.

Real Madrid, front runners for Yoro

Yoro, one of the top young defenders this season, has Real Madrid’s attention. He, too, prefers a move to the Bernabeu over others, and the Spanish giants have recruited some of the top emerging talents out of France in recent years.
They could add Yoro to that equation and make an offer similar to the way they did for Eduardo Camavinga a few years back when he was in the final year of his deal at Rennes. Yoro would welcome a move to the Bernabeu, and should Florentino Perez come calling, he would undoubtedly answer the door.
