Chelsea youngster Tariq Lamptey is reportedly attracting interest from five clubs with the 19-year-old having a decision to make on his future as the transfer window draws to a close.
Lamptey made his debut during the recent 2-1 win over Arsenal and has also featured for the Blues in both of their FA Cup matches this season.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard sees the right-back as part of the future at Stamford Bridge though he has attracted plenty of interest.
Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb claim that European giants AC Milan and Lille have both made offers to take the youngster on a free at the end of the current campaign.
It comes with Lamptey’s contract ending in west London in the summer.
However it’s reported that Lamptey could also leave this month with Premier League side Brighton, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace all making £5million bids.
The report adds that Lamptey is keen to play among the biggest names and is attracted to Milan.
