Chelsea are ready to close a deal for Heerenveen's Serbia winger Miraelem Sulejmani.

The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea are aiming to sign Sulejmani, 19, before the interest from Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter and AC Milan grows stronger.

Sulejmani, rated at £10 million, has hit 14 goals in 25 games, but he is under contract until 2010. Chelsea want to buy him and loan him to PSV Eindhoven, a similar arrangement to that with Brazil centre-half Alex.

Sulejmani's agent Mihael Stankovic said: "He's playing very well and a lot of clubs want to sign him. Chelsea were here again at the weekend."
