Chelsea interested in signing 16-year-old rising talent from PSV Eindhoven

Chelsea are interested in PSV Eindhoven youngster Heritier Deyonge, according to L’Equipe (h/t Express).

The 16-year-old joined PSV in 2012 and has made rapid progress into the club’s U17 side, as per the report.

The Belgian youngster can play as a left-back or a right-back but prefers playing down the left flank. The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 16-year-old, while Paris Saint-Germain are slight favourites to sign the player.

Deyonge recently told FootMercato (h/t Express):

“I like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe.”

Deyonge could be another brilliant player coming through the Dutch system but he is too young to play for the first-team at Chelsea or any other club right now.

It will be interesting to keep a tab on the youngster as the months go by and hopefully, Deyonge will progress into the PSV first-team soon.

Chelsea didn’t sign many players in the summer but it always makes sense to get quality youngsters into the team.

Our youth system has produced a number of talents and we are seeing the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek getting regular playing time under Maurizio Sarri.

Hopefully, we will produce more talents in the coming years and with Sarri at the helm, it would be great to unearth another quality youth product soon.
