Chelsea are reported to be at the front of the queue for Swedish starlet Alexander Isak.
Swedish publication Expressen is reporting that the Blues are leading the race for the 17-year-old AIK striker, who is being labelled as the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Recently it was revealed that no less than 90 clubs, including Manchester United and Real Madrid, sent scouts to watch Isak in action in the Allsvenskan with a bidding frenzy expected in the next summer transfer window.
However, it appears as though Chelsea are favourites after he signed up with Serbian agent Vladimir ‘Vlado’ Lemic, who holds a close relationship with Blues owner Roman Abramovich.
The Expressen report suggested: “Lemic has strong contacts with the top European football clubs, and through Chelsea‘s former sporting director Frank Arnesen, the Serb has established a relationship with Russian owner Roman Abramovich.”
Isak, who has played for Sweden at U21, U19 and U17 levels, has scored nine goals in 16 starts for AIK so far this season.
