Chelsea entered race for highly-rated Dutch midfielder

Chelsea and Manchester City are among the clubs battling to sign PSV rising star Mohammed Ihattaren.

According to Calcio Mercato, the Premier League pair are willing to sign the youngster, but face competition from Inter Milan and Barcelona.

Mohammed Ihattaren has been catching the eye with some impressive displays in the UEFA Youth League, a competition the Blues know very well.

The 16-year-old currently plays as a central midfielder for Eredivisie side but is also capable of playing out wide on the right.

While he is not yet in the first-team picture at PSV, Mohammed Ihattaren is highly sought at the club and within Dutch football.

Despite his tender age, the 16-year-old has already represented the Netherlands at U19s level.

If the Dutchman go on and make a move to Stamford Bridge, he would follow in the footsteps of striker Daishawn Redan, who joined the FA Cup holders from Ajax at a young age and is now impressing in the club’s academy teams.

Chelsea are meanwhile trying to convince Eden Hazard to stay with Belgium international claiming that he decided on his career at Stamford Bridge and the loss at Etihad Stadium will surely have a negative effect on the 28-year-old star.

The Blues were defeated without a chance with Kun Aguero scoring a hat-trick and the FA Cup holders have suffered their heaviest loss in their Premier League history.

It is interesting to see what changes will Chelsea chiefs make as it is vivid that the club needs significant reorganization.
