According to The Sun, Chelsea are determined to beat Premier League rivals Liverpool to the signing of talented Exeter City midfielder Ben Chrisene.

Chrisene is the youngest player to play for Exeter City after making his debut at the age of 15 earlier this month in a Carabao Cup game against Coventry.

The report claims Chrisene has trained with Liverpool and has now been invited to train with Chelsea.

Ethan Ampadu held the record of the youngest player to play for Exeter City before it was broken by Chrisene. Ampadu joined Chelsea in 2017 and is currently on loan at RB Leipzig.

Ampadu is highly rated at Chelsea and Frank Lampard revealed why he let the midfielder leave the club on loan.

Lampard said: “I tried to sign Ethan on loan at Derby last year so I’m a big fan, but with the minutes he played last year, in the interest of Ethan and of Chelsea, the idea he can play a lot of games somewhere could be good for him.

“I really wanted to work with Ethan this year. That’s a slight disappointment, but it’s to benefit him.

“In midfield and defence we have a lot of quality, so each player is a case by case.”
