The Anderlecht forward has seen himself become regarded as one of Europe’s finest young strikers after his fine performances for the Belgians have caught the attention of a number of top sides from the continent since joining them over the summer from Partizan Belgrade.
His recent move has not been thought to be enough to keep said clubs from lining up a move for him during the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old already has nine goals in 12 appearances this term, continuing his fine form from his time in his homeland and has been targeted as a hot prospect that any club would be happy to have on their books.
Chelsea have shown a great interest in landing his services, but Jose Mourinho is believed to be looking at more experienced options to lead his front line, but he could return for a closer look at the end of the season.
However, Mourinho’s reluctance could pave the way for Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola to make a move as he looks for an alternative to Mario Mandzukic, and the player may see the German side as a more viable option because of Guardiola’s excellent track record with developing top youth players.
