Chelsea linked to Belgian youngster

Clive Rose

File this one under 'player I've never heard of'. According to the Daily Mail, who could, for all I know, be pulling this story out of thin air, the Blues are interested in Anderlecht starlet Wout Faes, a 15-year-old centre back who played in Scotland for the Belgian under-17s last week.

I guess this ticks a couple of boxes, so far as Chelsea's transfer strategy is concerned:

  1. He's 15, and we like buying young players.
  2. He's Belgian, and we like buying Belgians.
  3. If you click through the link he has David Luiz hair, which was a major part in picking up both Nathan Ake and Willian (may or may not be true).

If anyone's ever seen Faes play (or has even heard of him before), let us know what to make of this rumour in the comments. Because we have pretty much nothing.

Cue 'but what about Andreas Christensen???!!!1'
