TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Prepare January Bid For Argentinean Starlet

By on October 19, 2011

Chelsea are monitoring the progress of River Plate striker Lucas Ariel Ocampos, according to reports.

The 17 year-old has already made 11 appearances for the first team scoring 3 goals and his impressive displays haven’t gone unnoticed with sources in Italy suggesting that Palermo were hoping to conclude a deal for the teenager when the transfer window opens in the New Year.

But recent rumours emerging suggest Chelsea scouts are also well aware of Ocampos’ progress and have returned glowing reports to Stamford Bridge and Andre Villas-Boas is close to giving the green light on a bid ahead of the January transfer window.

The talented forward has drawn comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo due to his physique, position, and style of play.
