Lurking in the pages of an English news source, this morning, is the inference that Chelsea are going head-to-head with Barcelona for a talented young midfielder.

The popular red-top publication the Mirror, is suggesting that Chelsea are looking to sign Arthur.

Arthur is a 21-year-old midfielder who is on the books of the Brazilian side, Gremio.

Previously, speculation has linked Artur with a move to the Catalan giants, Barcelona.

However, our source is suggesting that Chelsea view Arthur as the long-term replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

This season Arthur helped Gremio to there first Copa Libertadores in 22-years.

With his playing style likened to that of the Spanish dup of Xavi and Iniesta, Arthur is certainly making waves amongst the top clubs in Europe.

However, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea can persuade him that his future lies at Stamford Bridge.
