Mike McGrath of The Telegraph had an interesting transfer scoop last night regarding Chelsea’s desire to sign young Ajax teenager Amourricho van Axel Dongen.
The superbly named 15 year old has been impressing in the youth ranks in Holland, and like many of the Eredivisie Champions’ youngsters he is being coveted by a host of top European sides. McGrath names Manchester City and Manchester United as rivals for his signature.
He’s already playing for the Under 18s despite not turning 16 until later this year, which shows just how advanced his development is.
The winger has scored 7 in 9 for the under 17s from the left wing, which probably shows why he was bumped up a category.
The addition of Xavier Mbuyamba two weeks ago showed that the Blues are still always ready to chase Europe’s top academy talents, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Amourricho join him in the near future.
