Report: Clubs already contacting Chelsea to sign their 18-year-old prospect who's yet to make senior debut

Chelsea are reportedly already receiving transfer interest in an academy prospect who’s yet to make his senior debut for them.

According to Goal, several clubs are already registering their interest in Chelsea teenager Bryan Fiabema.

It is understood that teams are sharing interest in trying to sign the 18-year-old either on loan or in a permanent deal.

Interestingly, the report adds he’s one Chelsea player that may be on the move.

Fiabema, who’s been on Chelsea’s books since February 2020, is an extremely exciting young talent.

He’s yet to make a first-team debut for the Blues, but has been one of the standout players during the last year in the various youth teams at Cobham. For example, the centre-forward already has four goals in nine appearances this season for the club’s Under-23s side in the Premier League 2 division.

Fiabema is also starting to make a name for himself on the international stage, too. The attacker has six goals in eight caps for Norway’s Under-18s team.

Chelsea academy still has gems

Chelsea’s current youth crop may not be the same level as the golden generation that’s preceded them. The likes of Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount have all come through the Blues system together in recent times.

However, there’s still plenty of talent learning their trade at the club.

John Terry’s arrival this week to take up a coaching consultancy role in the academy should excite the Blues youngsters.

If you’re good enough, there is definitely a route into Thomas Tuchel’s senior squad at Stamford Bridge.

Harvey Vale, Xavier Simons and Jude Soonsup-Bell all made their Chelsea debuts this month as a reward for their impressive performance in the club’s academy.
