The teenager was strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but the 19 year old ended up moving to the Turkish capital instead but could be on his way again, with a host of sides said to be keen on acquiring his services.

Bruma greatly impressed at the Under 20 World Cup in 2013, where he netted five goals in four matches, and is a player with a great deal of potential who made an impact with a number of cameo roles at Galatasary last term.

Though Jose Mourinho has a host of youthful talents in his squad he may feel that a move for Bruma is one he can not pass up especially as the £12m it would take to sign the forward is a reasonable price to pay for such a prospect.

Everton, West Ham and QPR are also said to be keen on Bruma but one imagines that a move to Chelsea would trump offers from the other Premier League suitors.
