The Sun claim Chelsea will battle with Tottenham to sign Napoli’s teenage midfielder Amadou Diawara.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is said to be an admirer of the player and keen to sign him when the transfer window reopens in January.

Spurs, despite having several midfield options, are also apparently interested in the 19-year-old, who was linked with a move to White Hart Lane during the summer.
