Hamburg starlet Jann-Fiete Arp looks all set to leave the Bundesliga club at the end of the season, according to reports.

The highly-rated Germany youth striker has already caught the eye of several Premier League clubs and there looks likely to be an almighty scramble for his services at the end of the season.

Hamburg look in grave danger of getting relegated this season and Bild claims there is just a 20% chance Arp remains at the club next season if they are relegated.

Arp has scored twice in 15 games for Hamburg after making his senior debut in the Autumn and he became the first player born this century to net a Bundesliga goal when he scored in a 2-1 defeat to Hertha Berlin in October.

The forward will likely leave if the club drop into Bundesliga 2 and Bild claim he could be sold for as little as €7.5million

In November TEAMtalk revealed Chelsea were confident that they had all but tied up a deal for Arp.

He was offered the chance to move to Stamford Bridge last summer, but he decided against the move as he wanted to gain more experience and Chelsea were happy to step back.

His agent denied the interest from Chelsea and when asked about the talk he told Bild: “This story has nothing in it.”

The Blued are still believed to be at the head of the queue for the 18-year-old player, although Tottenham, Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton are all rumoured to be interested.

The 1.84m centre-forward is contracted to Hamburg until June 2019 and has scored 15 goals in 17 games for Germany’s U17s, including five in five appearances at the Under-17 World Cup in India last year.
