By Akhil Fisher

The Chelsea youth academy is on the verge of being raided by Bayern Munich, once again, in a situation similar to Jamal Musiala’s transfer. 16-year-old Emran Soglo is next on the Bavarian’s wishlist.

The youngster has been training as part of Bayern’s U17 and U19 squads ahead of the 2021/22 season and club scouts have been extremely impressed by his skills and abilities, deeming him fit for a permanent move to Germany.

The talent’s representatives Willy Moupoupa and Jack Blouet have revealed that few other clubs are also vying for his signature. Speaking to the Fussball Transfers, they said: "Yes, we are in talks with Bayern. There is nothing official to announce (yet). We are looking for the best option at the highest level for Emran's career."

The absence of a contract means that the youngster has been at trial at Bayern for over a week now and is bound for a free transfer, wherever a move may materialize.

He has impressed so far with his mature playing style and tactical intelligence on the ball, thanks to his versatile playing personality and flexible role in midfield.

Bayern are a highly likely destination for the teenager, given the presence of former Chelsea scout Florian Zahn, who has helped the Bavarians secure the signings of Musiala and centre-half Bright Arrey-Mbi from Cobham.
