Chelsea are not renowned for bringing through homegrown players; but the Blues faithful here in the Football Transfer Tavern are convinced that will change soon!
Chelsea’s developmental system is one of the most successful in the world, with the Blues regularly winning both national and European competitions throughout the younger age groups.
Our landlord simply cannot get his head around this; if the Chelsea youth team is so good – why have the Blues not brought through any top young players in recent years?
It is the million-dollar question, and the obvious answer is simply because the gap between youth football and first team football is so big.
Nonetheless, one particularly vocal Chelsea fan has been going on for weeks about how change is coming.
He is convinced that there are a few special talents in the Chelsea youth team that all have the potential to be the next big thing in the Premier League.

With that said, here are THREE hidden gems currently at Chelsea – heard of them?
