Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal target Jann-Fiete Arp is set to leave Hamburg and sign for Bayern Munich this summer, according to a report.

According to an exclusive by Fussballtransfers, Bayern are poised to secure the signature of the exciting, teenage attacker.

It will come as a blow to Chelsea, who looked set to land the 18-year-old in January.

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.”

Now though Arp, who, according to the Daily Mirror,  is on the radar of Tottenham, Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton, looks bound for Bayern.

Bild have claimed that there is a 20% chance Arp remains at the relegation-threatened club next season if they go down and he could be bought for as little as €7.5million

The report claims Arp will not feature in the Bayern first-team straight away and the Bundesliga champions will look to loan out the teenager, possibly back to Hamburg.

The 1.84m centre-forward is contracted 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.
