The teenager, unhappy at a lack of first-team opportunities at the club, is understood to be stalling on a new deal, and the tension between the player and the club is understood to have alerted Arsenal and Liverpool, both of whom are understood to be keeping tabs on the Anglo-Nigerian defender.
However, Chelsea may well want to think twice about potentially letting the youngster leave the club after he reaffirmed his class with a magical goal against Tottenham in an U-21 match.
The defender picked up possession in his own half before, spying a whisper of opportunity, slammed an effort into the back of the net from the halfway line! It was an effort reminiscent of comparable strikes by David Beckham and Xabi Alonso, a parallel not lost on the commentator.
It was a stunning strike, and one that killed off any potential Spurs response, putting the Blues youngsters 3-0 up in the process!
