Chelsea Set To Pounce For Chilean Starlet
Chelsea are ready to launch a New-Year bid for Chilean defender Igor Lichnovsky, according to widespread reports.
The 17-year-old is on the books of Santiago side Universidad de Chile, and is highly rated in his homeland. Media outlets are reporting Chelsea are now planning to swoop for the talented teenager after sending scouts to assess his progress.
Chelsea appear to be looking to the next generation at Stamford Bridge – the Lichnovsky speculation coming days after the Blues were linked with a £2million deal for 14-year-od MK Dons midfielder Seyi Ojo.
Chelsea have already signed Romelu Lukaku, 19, this summer along with Juan Mata, 23 and Oriol Romeu 19 and the club have high hopes for starlet Josh McEachran, 18.
