It's been no secret 19-year-old attacking midfielder Angel Gomes hasn't been happy with his playing time at Old Trafford for Manchester United. This could end up being great news for Frank Lampard and his staff at Chelsea.
Per a report, the Blues have keyed in on Gomes as a summer signing and reportedly feel confident they'll be able to land his signature in the coming months. Could we see the promising player making moves at Stamford Bridge?

Gomes is out of contract with United at the end of this season. The club has offered him a lucrative new deal, but he reportedly turned that down because he's keeping his options open. His main goal right now is more action on the pitch. He wants to be a key figure in helping a club win championships.
Due to United's depth in the midfield, Gomes has only made a handful of first-team appearances for the team since his debut in 2016-17. While nothing is close to finalized between the youngster and Chelsea, this is certainly something to monitor moving forward.
Will Gomes don the jersey of a new English giant starting next season? It's looking that way, with Chelsea looking to be in a great position.
