According to German newspaper Bild, Chelsea are in pole position to sign Borussia Dortmund youngster Nnamdi Collins.
Chelsea scouts have watched the 16 year old defender for years and the Blues are now keen on signing the young defender.
The 16-year-old centre-back, who is yet to make his professional debut, is regarded as one of the outstanding young talents both in Dortmund’s academy and across German youth football.
Despite being just 16 years old, Collins runs the 30 metres in just 3.8 seconds – only a tenth of a second slower than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s record, a time he is expected to beat as he gets older.
Chelsea have reportedly put together a transfer package for Dortmund worth around €2million (£1.75m) for the signing of the 16 year old defender.
Collins only has one year left on his current deal with Dortmund and the German club may be forced to cash in if a contract extension can’t be agreed with the teenager.
