Chelsea targets young talent in non-leagues

Jayden Wareham was snapped up from non-league Woking.

Chelsea is now taking interest in the non-league market to sign the best young talents for future perspective.

Jayden Wareham was snapped up from non-league Woking. He scored for the juniors in their UEFA Youth League tie against Juventus last week.

Goal reports Fifa regulations, after-effects of Brexit, ‘have meant it is harder for clubs to bring in young talents from overseas’. The Premier League giants is interested in Bradley Ryan from Welling United and Sam McClelland from Coleraine FC in Northern Ireland.

Kingstonian left-back Bryant Akono Bilongo is just 19 years old and he is reportedly close to signing for the English club for £50,000.

Another Goal source claimed, “Maybe more clubs should be scouting kids of an older age who will be closer to the first team than eight or nine-year-olds who must go through the system. You have to wait 10 years for these players. Clubs like Chelsea don’t rest on their laurels with what they’ve got.”
