Chelsea are reportedly in the race to sign Championship star Matty Cash, according to the Mirror.
The Premier League side, who easily defeated fellow title rivals Arsenal 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to move nine points clear at the summit of the top-flight, have been linked with a surprise summer swoop for the highly-rated Nottingham Forest midfielder.
The 19-year-old, who has been at the City Ground since October 2014, has provided three assists in 19 appearances in all competitions for Forest so far this season, with caretaker Gary Brazil’s men currently sat 15th in the Championship standings after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
Cash, who was loaned out to Dagenham and Redbridge last term, is also said to attracting interest from Red Bull Leipzig, who have mounted a shock Bundesliga title bid this term, sat just four points behind defending champions Bayern Munich.
The midfielder scored three goals and assisted three further strikes in 12 games whilst on loan at Dagenham last year in League Two.
