RUMOURS: Chelsea in Bazoer running with Barcelona and Man City

2222The teenager has already been capped by the Netherlands and the Stamford Bridge outfit are eager to sign him up in the summer, probably for a fee in the region of £24 million

Chelsea have set their sights on £24 million-rated Dutch prodigy Riechedly Bazoer, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Ajax midfielder, who is 19 years old, has caught the eye of several clubs around Europe, with Barcelona and Manchester City also thought to be interested in acquiring his services in the summer.

The Blues, though, have already made positive steps to try to secure the player, who has already been capped by the Netherlands. On Friday, they held talks with his brother and agent, Irchandley Bazoer, at their training complex in Surrey.

Napoli offered Ajax £20 million for the player in January but were rebuffed, with Bazoer not keen on a move to Serie A.
