Liverpool are in a three-way tussle for highly-rated Chelsea youngster Ola Aina.

Napoli and Borussia Dortmund also want the versatile defender who has broken into the England Under-21 setup this season.

Interest in Aina, 19, is mounting with his Chelsea contract expiring at the end of the season.

Napoli – who have another Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah on loan – have maintained their interest after having a loan bid for Aina turned down last summer.

They and Dortmund can open talks with Aina about signing a pre-contract ahead of a summer move from next month.

Aina featured for Chelsea in pre-season after impressing for their successful academy sides and but has yet to be handed his competitive debut.
