CONTRACT SNUB! Arsenal and Chelsea keeping tabs on Kostas Manolas as defender rejects Roma extension
Kostas Manolas has put Arsenal and Chelsea on red alert by snubbing Roma’s latest contract offer.
The defender was linked with a move away from the Italian capital in the summer after impressing last season.
The Premier League duo were both keen on the Greece international, but they were priced out of a move in the end.
Roma are now trying to tie the 25-year-old down to a new deal but, according to Calciomercato, he has rejected their latest offer.
The Serie A side have offered a contract worth around £42,000-a-week, but he is holding out for a bigger increase on his current £34,000-a-week deal, which expires in the summer of 2019.
