Club Confirms Chelsea Placed a Bid for 18-year-old Megatalent, Player just Signed 5-year Contract

Chelsea Bad Start to Season

Recent reports have claimed that Chelsea are interested in Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Adrian Semper. The 18-year-old goalkeeper is one the best young talents in football and Dinamo manager Zoran Mamic has confirmed that Chelsea did indeed try to sign the youngster.

Semper revealed that Blues’ representatives were in Zagreb to make an offer for Semper, but their bid has been rejected by the Croatian club.

He confirmed to the local press: “For the last few days, Chelsea representatives have been in Zagreb, where they have prepared – I must admit – a great offer for Adrian Semper.

“We thanked them. They were highly professional and pleasant people, but we said ‘no’.

“It is never easy to reject such a big offer for a young player, but we are convinced Adrian has a fantastic future ahead of him, and we want him to spend at least some of that future with Dinamo.”

It is believed that Chelsea made an offer of around £3.1m.
