Chelsea are set to hand their latest young debutant, Tino Anjorin a five-year contract extension.
The 18-year-old made his Premier League debut in the 4-0 win over Everton last weekend.
Talks have advanced well with the teenager’s representatives as Chelsea plan on keeping him at the club long term. Anjorin is coveted as a top attacking midfielder, who could break out in Europe in the coming years.
Billy Gilmour has already won the hearts of Blues fans with his commanding performances against Everton and Liverpool. The Scotsman joins a host of Chelsea academy players to break into the senior team this season. Mason Mount is nearly a regular in the first team while Fikayo Tomori and Reece James are considered the backbone of the Chelsea team in the near future.
If it were not for injuries, Callum Hudson-Odoi could have become a regular in the Blues front-three by now. Tammy Abraham’s goalscoring success is bound to earn him a place in the England Euro 2020 squad. The route to first team success has defintely changed at Stamford Bridge right after Lampard’s arrival.
No longer players are getting outcasted or sold off for pennies on the dollar. Anjorin’s only job now will be to prove himself, either at Chelsea or on loan next season.
