Arsenal, Chelsea go for Villa striker Watkins
Two Premier League giants are eyeing up Ollie Watkins for a winter transfer.
The Aston Villa ace, who only recently signed a long-term contract, is wanted by Arsenal and Chelsea.
Per football.london, the two clubs believe they can convince Watkins to move on from Villa.
Even though the England forward is contracted until 2028, they believe a deal can be done.
Arsenal want an improvement on Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, while the Blues are desperate for a goalscorer.
Since both clubs are also linked to Brentford’s Ivan Toney, there is a chance that whoever misses out on the Bees attacker will go for Watkins.
