Champions Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore.

The 21-year-old had appeared bound for West Ham United despite still having three years remaining on his contract at the Riverside.

Traore was previously with Barcelona for over a decade and even managed a single first-team appearance.

He later featured eleven times for Aston Villa after joining them in August 2015, before making 31 appearances for Boro last term.

But according to the Daily Star, Traore could next be on his way to Stamford Bridge.
