Chelsea closing on a deal to sign new striker

The summer transfer window is right around the corner, and we always expected Chelsea could be one of the busier clubs.

However, this particular deal is probably for a different type of priority, one we might well be seeing a lot more of in the coming years.

Due to new Brexit rules introduced in January making it harder to buy young players from abroad, Academies are looking lower down the football pyramid to fill their Under-23s squad.

And according to The Telegraph, Chelsea are closing in on a deal to sign 17-year old striker Jayden Wareham from non-league side Woking.

Wareham was released by Queens Park Rangers two years ago but he has been scouted by Southampton, Leicester City and West Ham, but Chelsea looked to have pipped them to his signature.

As you will notice from a quick bit of Google research, he has also trialled at Chelsea under 18s recently.
