Chelsea favourites in race to sign striker with over 100 goals

mourinho0000Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are intrigued by the latest reports concerning a young European talent, after hearing they are winning the race for his services.

15-year-old Thomas Buitink has attracted the attention of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United- but Chelsea’s ties with Dutch side Vitesse Arnheim have put the West London outfit in the front of the queue.

Buitink, who scored over 100 goals at youth level, is set to become another link between Vitesse and Chelsea; with the Blues having sent the likes of Nathan Baker, Nathan and Isaiah Brown on-loan to the Eredivisie side.

The Dutch U16 international could become one of the brightest talents in European football but our Chelsea regulars at the bar are unsure, as they are aware Jose Mourinho does not have a decent track-record with young players.

Our Arsenal and United fans in the bar have joined the discussion, saying that their sides would be a better fit for the player to develop his talents- something that’s hard to argue with.

Chelsea fans, is your club the best fit for this excelling youngster? Let us know below in the comments!
