Chelsea on the verge of 16 year old starlet

Chelsea are busy negotiating to sign 16-year-old Malmo FF striker Marko Mitrovic who has been dubbed 'the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic'. The young Swede has been capped at the youth level and has been courted by Blackburn, Arsenal, Inter Milan, and Dutch outfits Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven, but it appears Chelsea are leading the chase.

With the imminent departure of Didier Drogba, Chelsea need to strengthen this area of the club, and while this may be a signing for the future, its a certain sign of intent.

Malmo's sporting director Hasse Borg has admitted that they are in talks with Stamford Bridge. Malmo is also the club that fostered Zlatan Ibrahimovic. On trial over the summer, he has already played two games for the Chelsea juniors.

Note: I was interviewed for the second time today by New Zealand's BSports Radio in Auckland. It was a lot of fun, email me if you want to listen to the interview.
