Chelsea set to battle London rivals Arsenal for the services of Udinese attacking midfielder Jakub Jankto according to report. 

The 21-year-old has been in blistering form for the Serie A outfit this season so far by scoring five goals from 15 appearances in all competitions which have attracted Premier League big guns.

According to Corriere dello Sport claims that the Blues have indicated an interest in the Czech international, while last month there is report said that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants to bring Serie A star Jankto to Emirate Stadium as a potential replacing the soon-to-be out-of-contract Mesut Ozil.

AC Milan and Italian Champions Juventus are also thought to be monitoring the situation of the playmaker, whose Udinese contract is set to run until 2021.
