Bristol Post claims Chelsea are closing in on signing Bristol City forward Antoine Semenyo.

The report claims that the striker is close joining the Blues after being recalled from his loan spell at Newport County.

Bristol City confirmed earlier today the striker would be returning to Ashton Gate, but it appears he will not be staying long.

It is understood the striker will join up with Chelsea’s academy sides but the prospect of him returning on loan either

immediately or in the future is not being ruled out at this stage.

Chelsea have developed a good relationship with Bristol City over the years, with the Robins currently having Jay Dasilva, Tomas Kalas and Kasey Palmer on loan at this period of time.

Manchester United have also been credited with a link for the striker but it appears that the Blues have won the race for the talented attacker who has experienced an amazing 12 months in his football career.
