Report: Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur scouting Daryl Janmaat

Center Pitch - Chelsea v Newcastle

The Newcastle United full-back is a wanted man.

Newcastle United are said to be concerned about the long-term future of their Dutch right-back Daryl Janmaat - according to a report in The Chronicle today.

That is because Premier League rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on bringing him to London - with Italian giants Juventus also in the reckoning.

Chelsea's interest will of course not be a surprise. They are in need of a new right-back with Branislav Ivanovic's demise now becoming rapidly concerning.

Tottenham on the other hand already have Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier, a move for Janmaat would surely facilitate the exit of one of the English pair.

As for Newcastle, they will be desperate for him to stay.

Throughout their troubles the Dutch international has been one of the more consistent performers in the Newcastle team over the past two seasons.

However the report claims that Chelsea and Spurs are already watching him in action seeing if he is the right fit for the club.

If Newcastle continue to struggle then convincing Janmaat that his best interests are to remain at St James Park is going to be a difficult job with London calling.
