Arsenal and Chelsea Send Scouts to Watch Aston Villa vs Lille as Man Utd Face Battle

Scouts from Arsenal and Chelsea reportedly observed Leny Yoro’s performance against Aston Villa. The 18-year-old defender has garnered attention from top clubs in Europe, with Manchester United also keeping a close watch on him. According to reports, representatives from Arsenal and Chelsea attended Villa’s 2-1 victory over Lille in the Europa Conference League specifically to watch Yoro.

Lille’s draw against Unai Emery’s team in the Conference League prompted the Premier League sides to seize the opportunity to see Yoro in action. With less than 18 months left on his current contract, there is growing speculation about Yoro’s potential exit from Lille at the end of the season. Yoro has become a pivotal part of Lille’s first team, featuring in almost all of their league games this season.

Despite his contributions, he and his team couldn’t halt Villa’s progress in the recent match, but an important goal from his center-back partner has kept Lille’s hopes alive for the next leg of the competition. The tie remains finely poised as both Lille and Villa aim to secure a spot in the competition’s semi-finals. Furthermore, Lille is working to secure Yoro’s long-term commitment, but no breakthrough has been made so far.

In addition to Arsenal and Chelsea, Manchester United has also been linked as a potential suitor for the promising young defender. This indicates that Yoro is set to be a subject of interest for several top clubs across Europe in the upcoming transfer window.
