Chelsea are firm admirers of Madueke and they remain keen on enticing youthful talent to Stamford Bridge.
Journalist Simon Phillips has told GiveMeSport, Chelsea have accelerated their interest in Noni Madueke. The club are ‘definitely very keen’ on signing the PSV Eindhoven star.
The West London club have been busy since the transfer window reopened for business at the start of the month and completed the £88.5million acquisition of Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The report adds Graham Potter has been tracking the 20-year-old winger for an extensive period and Chelsea have headed to the negotiating table despite the Dutch club making it clear they have no interest in sanctioning a mid-season departure.
PSV Eindhoven are in a strong negotiating position and do not necessarily need to entertain bids as Noni Madueke still has more than two years remaining on his contract.
Phillips understands that Chelsea are firm admirers of Madueke and they remain keen on enticing youthful talent to Stamford Bridge after winning the race for Mudryk.
Phillips told GiveMeSport: “Chelsea are definitely very keen on this player. He’s one of many top young talents that Chelsea are trying to bring in.
“We’ve seen already, since the new owners came in, that they have been splashing the cash on young players.
“He’s another one that has come to the forefront and they’ve recently accelerated that interest and had some initial contact with his agent to see if a deal is doable.”
The 20-year-old winger has netted 20 goals and provided a further 14 assists in 80 PSV appearances.
