Chelsea have completed the signing of highly rated attacker Bryan Solhaug Fiabema from Tromso, in what is Chelsea’s first signing since being hit with a transfer ban.

The Blues are keen to strengthen the youth department and are looking to follow up the signing of Bryan Fiabema with the purchase of another quality youngster in Josef Baccay.

Chelsea are preparing to raid Norway for a second time this month as the Blues line up Lillestrom youngster Josef Baccay.

According to Norwegian outlet VG, Chelsea are working up a deal for the 18-year-old, who can play anywhere on the left flank though mainly at left-back. The 18-year-old is with First Access Sports, the agency who represent Fiabema and a host of other academy players already at Chelsea including Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Chelsea reportedly paid around £800,000 for Fiabema, and Baccay is expected to cost the club more. But just as the club did in the signing of Fiabema, Chelsea are hoping to take a closer look at Baccay and would want Lillestrom allow him to come in on an initial trial before a deal can happen.

Chelsea have a long history of snapping up highly rated youngsters, and with the academy now thriving under Frank Lampard, the club will be keen to see some of these youngsters develop into massive players for the club.
