Chelsea and Arsenal are set to compete for the signature of Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund this summer.

The Blues are yearning for a new centre-forward, having struggled to find the back of the net regularly this term.

Hojlund has been identified as a top target for them but The Mail cite that the Gunners also hold an interest in him.

The north London giants have been scoring freely this campaign but manager Mikel Arteta wants a physical striker.

The Dane has been earmarked as the perfect fit and he could be prised away for around €50m in the summer.

Hojlund recently starred for Denmark in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, scoring a stunning five goals in two outings.

He has been dubbed as the next Erling Braut Haaland and could be the subject of huge interest this summer.

Aside from the London duo, Manchester United and Real Madrid are also on the trail of the highly-rated marksman.

Hojlund recently confessed that he is a lifelong United fan.
