Jose Mourinho seems to be making a lot of moves for a lot of promising youngsters these days, as recent reports have suggested. The Portuguese, who guided his team to the EPL title last season, is being linked with a move for French prodigy tagged “new Yaya Toure.”
Naoui Ahamada is a 13-year old highly rated midfielder, considered as one of the hottest football prospects in France at the moment. At just 13, Ahamada is already being compared to Manchester City and Ivorian international, Yaya Toure, which is no mean feat.
The 13-year old is also being monitored by a host of other Ligue 1 club, including, Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco, and Lyon. The player, who currently plays with SC Air Bel is set to spark a bidding war among these clubs, despite not being qualified for a professional contract yet.
However, it is a little too late for other clubs as the Blues are said to have successfully signed the youngster, after offering his club a lucrative offer. According to French journalist Florian Fieschi, Chelsea have successfully negotiated the contract of the player.
Apparently due to the club’s change of policy and the FFP rule being championed by EUEFA, the Blues have in the last couple of years intensified moves to groom promising youngsters with a view to securing the club’s future. A couple of Chelsea’s youth players have already showed some promising signs of breaking into the first team by featuring in some grade A matches for the club. Last season, one of Chelsea’s most promising talents, Ruben Loftus-Cheek was included in a couple of matches involving the first team.
