The Blues are keeping tabs on the exciting 17-year-old, who has become regarded as one of the best prospects in Italy in recent times and is set to spark something of a transfer frenzy when the market re-opens in the summer.

It remains to be seen if the teenager will be keen to leave Italy at such a young age, but it may be that he will become the latest top talent snapped up by Premier League giants Chelsea and then loaned out to various feeder clubs to gain experience before being brought into the first-team.

Arsenal have a better record of offering chances to young players, and that may yet sway Scalera in that direction as he chooses the crucial next step of his career.
