Chelsea are chasing Anderlecht youngster Sefa Isci. The Daily Star says the highly-rated Turkish youngster is also wanted by Benfica but Jose Mourinho apparently plans to snap him up and then loan him out to gain first-team experience.

Isci's agent, Saffet Balkan, made the claims and if it was to happen the defender would join the Blues' partner club Vitesse.

Balkan said: "Benfica and Chelsea are interested in Sefa Isci.

"Chelsea want Isci to loan to their partner club Vitesse.

"Benfica made an enquiry for Sefa after his performances against them in the Youth Champions League.

"Benfica were impressed with Sefa's performances in the Youth Champions League and the Viareggio Cup." Balkan told Turkish Football.
