According to Daily Mail, Chelsea have shown interest in signing 18 year old Bursaspor striker Ali Akman.

The talented 18-year-old striker caught the attention of Chelsea after scoring nine goals in 16 games already this season.

Akman burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old making his debut before establishing himself as a key component of what is a very young Bursaspor squad.

He first grabbed the headlines with a spectacular goal from the halfway line playing for Turkey U17s in a friendly against Belarus in August 2018 which Turkey went on to win 2-0.

Akman has six months left in his contract and he doesn’t intend to extend his contract with the Turkish club. Bursaspor are willing to listen to offers now rather than risk losing him for minimum compensation in the summer.

Premier League rivals Arsenal are also interested in signing the skillful striker. Clubs from Germany, Italy and France have also shown interest in signing Akman this month.

Bursaspor reportedly want around £3million for the 18 year old striker but could be forced to accept less as the impact of the Covid pandemic hits finances across the continent.
