British newspapers such as the Metro linked the Blues to a transfer for the 18-year-old on Sunday, but it now appears that they were wrong. These stories have come after the youngster made his debut for the Turkey national side in a 2-1 win over Luxembourg in March. He has also scored played 33 times for Bursaspor, scoring four goals since last August.

However, it is the teenager’s youth team form which is likely to have attracted the reports of interest from Jose Mourinho. Unal has an unbelievable 25 goals in 24 appearances for the Turkey Under 16’s, and has also impressed at Under 19 and Under 21 level.

If the forward keeps up this level he may eventually move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs, but he’ll have to wait at least a little longer. Apparently fake agents are harming his cause.

Alt?parmak said: “These reports are nothing but gossip. Enes has one year left on his contract it would be illogical for Chelsea to make a €7 million offer right now. Enes is undoubtedly a very talented player and there are a number of big clubs keeping close tabs on him.

“There have been a number of licensed and unlicensed agents pretending to represent Enes trying to offer him to clubs outside of Turkey. If any clubs are interested the only parties with any say on the matter are Bursaspor and myself.”
