New, comments

Chelsea have been focusing on improving their academy lately, and they've had a young Swedish international on trial for the last several weeks. The trialist in question had some good things to say about his time in London.

Chelsea have had 15-year old Swedish striker Ihan Naser in on trial over the last several weeks, and the youngster has reportedly been impressive. Naser recently returned to his parent club, Gunnilses IF, and he had the following to say about his time in London:

"It was fun to train with such a big team like Chelsea. It went well for me, I played a match against Crystal Palace and scored a goal."

It can be difficult finding much information about foreign players that young, and there really doesn't appear to be much out there about Naser. He's been capped at several levels for the Swedish national team, so if Chelsea decided to bring him to London to join their youth side he'd likely cost them a very minor compensation fee. He's played all over the front line and attacking midfield roles, and at 15 he's probably not yet settled into a long term role.

Chelsea already have a pair of young Swedish internationals on the books in Ansur Osmanovic and Amin Affane. Affane is currently out on loan at Roda JC, and we will have more on Affane and the rest of the Chelsea loanees for you very shortly.
