Arsenal and Liverpool are said to be among a number of clubs keeping eye on Club Brugge winger Antonio Nusa
That was when the 18-year-old Norway international was reportedly to have passed up the opportunity to join Chelsea late in the summer transfer window.
According to 90min, Chelsea made a £25.7m offer for Nusa last month, only for the player to opt against a switch to Stamford Bridge.
The report adds that the Blues haven’t given up their pursuit of the teenage starlet, with Newcastle also credited as an interested party
Nusa has emerged as one of the most exciting young talents in Europe, establishing himself in the Brugge first team last season – during which he made four Champions League appearances, becoming the youngest player ever to score on his debut in the competition as Brugge beat Porto 4-0 in the group stage.
He earned his first senior call-up for Norway this summer, finding the net on his debut in a friendly against Jordan.
