CHELSEA face a fresh rebellion from its young players with Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount both being targeted by RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga club have been scouting the young Blues for some time and want them for the 2019-20 season squad, say reports in Germany.

Abraham and Mount, both currently away on loan, could join Callum Hudson-Odoi in quitting Stamford Bridge for the German top-flight.

Hudson-Odoi has grown frustrated with a lack of first-team opportunities under Maurizio Sarri and is being courted by Bayern Munich.

The England winger – along with the likes of Eden Hazard – is being tipped to leave West London this summer.

Chelsea are set to suffer through the first of their two-window transfer ban and could rely on their youngsters to stay afloat in the meantime.

TRANSFER BLUES

The likes of Abraham and Mount are set to join Reece James in returning from their loan spells to save the Blues.

But Bild are claiming they could be raiding by Leipzig – who currently sit third in the German top-flight.

Abraham has caught the eye this season while on loan at Aston Villa, having scored 22 goals already this season.

Derby loanee Mount on the other hand has scored seven times and assisted three more under Blues legend Frank Lampard.


It’s not yet clear whether Leipzig are hoping to sign the pair permanently or on loan.

Meanwhile, Chelsea fans have had their say on how they want Sarri to line up next season – with Olivier Giroud and Hudson-Odoi named in the starting XI.

A survey of 1,000 Blues supporters also stated that 72 per cent want the Italian boss to stay despite his tricky first season in England.
