Dominic Solanke's supposed ongoing contract issues at Chelsea reportedly attract the attention of London rivals Arsenal.

Arsenal have reportedly made Chelsea's young attacker Dominic Solanke a major summer transfer target.

It is believed that the 18-year-old, who is coming towards the end of a loan stint with Dutch side Vitesse, has been locked in a contract row with his parent club for some time.

According to The Sun, the England youth international has demanded £50,000 a week and also a role within the first-team squad at Stamford Bridge.

As a result, the report adds, a stand-off has been reached between the player and the West Londoners.

Further speculation claims that the uncertainty has attracted the attention of Arsene Wenger, who has a track record of giving young players a chance to prove themselves at the Emirates Stadium.

There is no suggestion that Wenger is prepared to meet Solanke's wage demands, but he is ready to offer him a more prominent role on the playing front.
