Chelsea are interested in Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, according to reports in the Italian media.
The 18-year-old has been dubbed a “better Paul Pogba” by some in the media, although he still has a lot to prove considering he is only 18 years of age.
Gravenberch is already capped at senior level by the Netherlands and he has been in decent form this season, having scored four goals and contributed six assists in 37 appearances.
Ajax are said to be holding out for around £30m to sell the teenager, but the Blues are not the only team reported to be interested in the player.
Liverpool are also believed to be a possible destination, with the Reds looking to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, while the likes Manchester United, Barcelona and Juventus have also been mentioned as potential suitors.
Chelsea are expected to reinforce their midfield options in the summer, but it remains to be seen whether Gravenberch is top of their list of targets.
