Chelsea are keeping tabs on Spartak Moscow striker Nikolay Ivannikov.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich is a big fan of the Russia U19 international and had satellite club Vitesse Arnhem hand him trials earlier this month.

Spartak are ready to sell Ivannikov at the end of the Russian season, where Dinamo Moscow are keen.

Vitesse could take the youngster on-loan with the view to grooming him for a future move to Chelsea.
