Chelsea transfer news: Watford and Wigan set to do battle for loan signing of Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah

The FA

Chelsea’s England starlet Nathaniel Chalobah is the subject of a transfer tussle between promotion rivals Watford and Wigan.

Under-21 star Chalobah missed out on Premier League loans to Sunderland and Crystal Palace and

Watford want Chalobah back for a season after he matured in Gianfranco Zola’s ranks during their last promotion chase.

However the Hornets are not willing to match his new £35,000-a-week wages – given to Chalobah after his exploits.

Now Wigan, who have cash from selling James McCarthy to Everton, have also tried for Chalobah and are willing to pay the salary in full.

London boy Chalobah may have a say in the decision and is swaying towards Watford, but Owen Coyle is keen to have him to fill a hole in his squad.

Coyle beat Watford and Middlesbrough to land Nick Powell from Manchester United and hopes his new-found financial power will help.
