Chelsea face Benfica competition for Paraguay starlet Mauro Caballero

Chelsea face competition from Benfica for Libertad prospect Mauro Caballero.

It was revealed last week that Chelsea were chasing the 17 year-old striker, but it's emerged Benfica are also keen.

Libertad president Carlos Guggiari admits Benfica had made a move for Caballero: "I know there are conversations between agents and the father, who is also the representative of the player. We are in expectation of receiving an approach or a formal proposal soon."

Guggiari sees Caballero in the same class as Oscar Cardozo "but he is faster".
