Arsenal and Chelsea have both set up deals with Hungarian outfit Ujpest for two of their brightest stars.

15-year-old's Zoltan Stieber and Mate Gulyas are both heading for London to undergo trials with the English giants.

Stieber has been invited to Highbury, while Gulyas is on his way to West London with The Blues.

"Arsenal approached Zoltan Stieber and Chelsea invited Mate Gulyas," confirmed Ujpest youth trainer Janos Barsi.

"The 15-year-old kids have gone to England for trials on Monday and are expected to come back on Sunday.

"It's important to emphasise that we don't want to sell our talents unless we get a very good offer for them."

Arsenal and Chelsea are the latest English clubs to try and take advantage of Hungary's new EU status, meaning the players no longer require work-permits to ply their trade in Britain.
