Chelsea are preparing for the future as they are reportedly set to add 16-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Torben Rhein to their youth team setup in January.

The Blues failed to progress to the knockout round of the UEFA Youth Champions League competition for the first time in the history of the competition, and that has prompted them into launching an unexpected bid for the youngster.

According to reports from Sport1, Rhein has caught the attention of the club’s youth team managers and they are set to do everything possible to lure him to the Cobham training ground in the upcoming transfer period.

The report claims Chelsea have tabled a contract offer to the youngster

The young German is one of the bright prospects at the Allianz Arena following his impressive display for Bayern Munich youth side. His skills and technical abilities to control the pace of the game is far beyond his age.

He is versatile enough to feature as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder and a defensive midfielder where he can use his strength to protect his defenders.

He has a good passing skill while his creativity at the middle of pitch is never in doubt.

Rhein will definitely be a great addition to the Blues U23 team but it remains unknown if the Bavarians are ready to do business with the West London club regarding the player’s future.

French Ligue 1 side Lille could find it difficult to prevent in-form striker Victor Osimhen from moving to greener pasture in January as Premier League clubs are set to compete for his services.

The 20-year-old, who joined Lille from Sporting Charleroi in the summer, has been scoring goals for fun in the French League and he is being monitored by Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool.

According to Sky Sports, José Mourinho is in search of a capable backup to Harry Kane, and he has beamed his searchlight on Osimhen

However, the Portuguese will need slug it out with Frank Lampard in the race for his services because the Blues manager is equally interested in the player.

The Blues have solely relied on Tammy Abraham for goals so far this season and Lampard believes signing the €70m-rated (according to Lille’s price tag) Nigerian will lessen Abraham’s goalscoring burden.

Though Liverpool are firing from all cylinders, Klopp is equally eyeing a possible swoop for the Lille forward as he wants to provide more competition for Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in the second half of the season.

It should be recall that Manchester United were once linked with a move with Osimhen but it remains to be seen if the Red Devils are still interested in his services amid Solskjaer’s desire to reunite with Erling Haaland.

Chelsea have received a set-back in talks to hand talented youngsters Tammy Abraham and Reece James new long term contracts.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard had to do with the players he inherited from his predecessor Maurizio Sarri at the beginning of the season due to FIFA’s transfer sanction.

The former England international did manage to get the best out of the available players as hehas  largely depended on the academy products — including Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi — for results, but that could change in January.

Abraham, who is the club’s leading goalscorer with 13 goals in all competitions, has been awe-inspiring so far, and the Blues are reportedly going to reward him with new bumper deal.

However, contract talks between the player and the club’s representative has reportedly failed to produce a positive result, according to The Telegraph.

The British media revealed that negotiations between both parties have stalled for now as the board members are shifting focus on getting the best players who can help Lampard achieve his aim for the season during the forthcoming transfer window.

Chelsea fans have no reason to panic because the player still has two years in his current contract, so, there is still much time to reach an agreement with him over a new deal.

Reece James is another academy product who is in line for a new contract following is awesome display for the Blues in recent weeks.

Just like Abraham, James still has two years in his deal with the Blues but the West London club hope to tie him down for more seasons.

“If the right club comes forward and puts the right amount on the table for me then we can talk. Otherwise I’ll just stay with Racing Genk until the end of this season.” he said.

Though Genk are yet to disclose their price tag on the player, it is believed that Berger would cost nothing less than €22m ( transfermarkt) considering his importance to Hannes Wolf’s side this season.
