Chelsea to lose academy star Samuel Iling-Junior, 16, as Juventus win transfer race for young England winger


CHELSEA starlet Samuel Iling-Junior is reportedly set to join Juventus at the end of the season on a free transfer.

The 16-year-old is said to have told the Blues he wants to leave the club, with the player having no shortage of admirers with clubs across Europe looking to secure his services.

SunSport reported in February how the likes of Bayern Munich, Ajax and Schalke are all chasing the winger with his contract set to expire.

But the West Londoners were desperate to retain Iling-Junior and were keen to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge, however it appears his future lies outside of England.

According to Goal journalist Romeo Agresti, the Old Lady are closing in on a deal to bring the forward to Italy.

He stated that the Three Lions youth international has been in Turin in recent days to complete a move to Juve.

It has been suggested that only fine details are needed to be agreed with Chelsea said to have accepted the fact he will link up with Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Chelsea will receive a small compensation fee once his move to Juventus is finalised.


Iling-Junior has featured 11 times for Chelsea’s Under-18s this season – chipping in with just one goal.

And he may not be the only Blues man to sign for Juventus at the end of the campaign with Jorginho being eyed up for a third reunion with Sarri.

The Italian midfielder has started the last three Premier League games after being benched by Frank Lampard following the restart of football.
