Chelsea step closer landing Wolfsburg whiz Julian Brandt

Chelsea are a step closer to landing Wolfsburg winger Julian Brandt.

The highly-rated 17-year-old is thought to have attracted the interest of Chelsea and a number of top other European clubs including Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund after impressing for Wolfsburg's youth ranks.

A Wolfsburg spokesman told Deutsche Presseagentur: "Julian Brandt has turned down the offer to sign a new contract with VfL Wolfsburg.

"As he is out of contract at the end of the campaign, Julian Brandt will therefore depart from VfL Wolfsburg."
