6 Tackles, 6 interceptions, and an assist: Chelsea, Arsenal linked star Mings impresses for Ipswich

Also linked to Crystal Palace, Ipswich Town's Tyrone Mings starred against Forest at the weekend.


Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings produced an impressive performance at the weekend, showing just why Premier League have been linked with his signature.

The Mirror reported at the end of last month that Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal are all monitoring the left-back.

The 21-year-old produced a quality display against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, helping his side to a 2-2 draw.

Mings set up a goal, and was Ipswich's most productive defender in two key areas. He made more tackles and interceptions than any player on the pitch, showing his alertness and ability to break up play.

Crystal Palace reportedly had a £2.5 million bid rejected for the youngster, but it may be Chelsea who have the advantage.

Mings' dad Adie is part of the scouting set up at the Blues, and The Sun reported how they are 'keeping tabs' on him only on Saturday.

The bad news for his potential suitors however, is that the talented English youngster signed a new contract a fortnight ago taking him up until 2017.
