Chelsea Target Highly Rated Italian Youngster

Italian source CalcioMercato claim that Chelsea are among a raft of sides tracking young Italian defender Mario Sampirisi.

The Genoa youngster has shown great maturity this term, forcing his way into the Serie A side’s first team picture this term and impressing many in the process. The 19 year old has now been called up to the Italian Under 21 national team set-up and appears to have a very bright future.

The former AC Milan youth team player is being tracked by Liverpool and Man United as well as by the West London side.

Chelsea have solid central defensive options in John Terry, David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic so are perhaps not in urgent need of another signing in this department but the West London side have adopted a more youthful transfer approach that could well explain their interest in the up and coming defender.
