Chelsea target Ajax star dubbed ‘better Paul Pogba’, other top European clubs join chase

Chelsea are reportedly targeting Ajax’s Ryan Gravenberch – who has been dubbed a ‘better Paul Pogba’.

The Blues did business with the Dutch outfit for Hakim Ziyech last year and want to get another deal over the line.

Thomas Tuchel is desperate to bolster his Chelsea squad this summer when he has his first full transfer market since replacing Frank Lampard in January – with the exciting central midfielder seemingly high on his wish list.

But he faces competition from two other Premier League clubs for the teenager.

It is thought Liverpool are one of those sides also chasing Gravenberch while reports have also linked him with Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United.

One of the latest teenage sensations to be produced from Ajax’s conveyor belt of youthful talent, Gravenberch doesn’t turn 19 until the day after Liverpool’s penultimate Premier League fixture of this season at Burnley on May 15.

Despite his tender years, the home-grown hero from Amsterdam has already made 50 first team appearances, netting eight goals, half of which have come this season, and won his first three international caps in last month’s World Cup qualifiers.
