Chelsea in transfer hunt for 15-year-old Monaco striker Malamine Efekele dubbed ‘the new Kylian Mbappe’


CHELSEA are tracking 15-year-old Monaco starlet Malamine Efekele, according to reports.

The talented teenager has already been compared to France and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe and the Blues could move to bring him in this summer.

Mbappe also started his career with Monaco, which has sparked comparisons between the pair.

Efekele is a winger, can play on either side and has been described as “lively” and “very promising”.

And the West Londoners could carry on their summer spending spree and move to land the youngster at the end of the season, according to French outlet L’Equipe.

Efekele was previously coached by Mbappe’s father Wilfrid at AS Bondy.

And because he turns 16 on July 19, Chelsea could be pressed into acting this summer as Brexit may stop English clubs from recruiting foreign minors after January 1, 2021.

The Blues have already landed Timo Werner from RB Leipzig in a £53million deal.

The German will join Ajax star Hakim Ziyech as new arrivals at Stamford Bridge this summer.

And Chelsea are hopeful Werner and Antonio Rudiger can convince their Germany teammate Kai Havertz to join them in West London from Bayer Leverkusen.

This comes after another German Blue Andre Schurrle had his transfer fee cut from £27million to just £2m after disappointing at Borussia Dortmund.
