This week Chelsea saw brilliant 18 year old talent Billy Gilmour break out as one of the young stars of the season, but it’s important to remember how we got there.
The Scot was signed at 16, and has had two years developing in the youth teams before being unleashed on the world.
We’re always looking to hoover up the next big thing for just those reasons, and according to The Sun we reckon we’ve found the next kid ready to come to Cobham and take things up a level.
Nnamdi Collins is at Borussia Dortmund, but as a 16 year old they can’t sign him to a full pro deal just yet. The Sun report that the Blues have joined Manchester City in the chase to persuade him to join them instead of staying put in western Germany.
Our youth team dominance has faded in recent times, perhaps as so many of the best talents like Gilmour get used more and more by the first team. Signing Collins would be a great way of establishing ourselves back at the top again.
