Chelsea have agreed to sign IFK Gothenburg’s talented young winger Edwin Andersson.
Confirming Andersson’s move to Chelsea, IFK Gothenburg academy manager Jonas Olsson told Gothenburg’s official website: “We of course wish Edwin good luck. We would have liked to have seen him stay with us but that he is being recruited to Chelsea is a good mark on our business.”
Edwin’s father has rated his son high, comparing him to Cristiano Ronaldo as well as Chelsea Academy product Callum Hudson-Odoi.
He said: “He’s pretty much like Callum Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea. When he was younger, he was a little more like [Cristiano] Ronaldo. He mainly stays on the left.”
His father went on to reveal his excitement that his son is joining the Blues and also appreciated the work done in the Chelsea academy.
“There have been an incredible number of clubs from virtually all countries that have been interested in him. But he has chosen to go to Chelsea when it’s time. According to the rules he must be 16 first and then it is up to the clubs to agree.
“There’s still some details, but the day it’s time he has decided that it’ll be Chelsea. It is a chance you can take if the package is right. They have very good education and care about you as a human being, which one might not believe.
“It is the dream of every boy to have such an opportunity, that is where we are now. But it should be the right conditions, otherwise it will be nothing.”
