Chelsea fans will hope this can continue to move along smoothly for them, with most of the recent updates on a move for the exciting young Germany international looking extremely promising.

The 21-year-old is undoubtedly one of the top young talents in the game right now, and could be an ideal long-term replacement for Eden Hazard at Chelsea.

The Blues lost their Belgian maestro while they were under a transfer ban last summer, and they’ve shown real intent now that they can spend again this year with deals already in place for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.
