Chelsea have such a good squad now that things have rather calmed down on the transfer front – at least when it comes to the first team.
In the youth ranks the endless drive to sign the best youngsters in Europe continues – now with even more urgency as the prospect of Brexit restrictions closes in.
According to SportWitness, who have translated claims from HLN in Belgium, the latest target is the superbly named Aster Vranckx.
The 18 year old has just agreed to join Wolfsburg next summer, but his long term dream is Chelsea.
Understanding that breaking into this side is going to be a challenge, he’s turned down moves to bigger clubs and decided that Wolfsburg will be a better stepping stone to the elite.
Well, it certainly beats being sent on loan to Vitesse, that’s for sure.
If everything goes to plan, we will see you in a few years, Aster.
