Chelsea, West Ham eyeing Fiorentina striker Jackson Beckham Diego Socrates da Silva de Jesus

Chelsea are eyeing Fiorentina striker Jackson.

The teenager's full name is Jackson Beckham Diego Socrates da Silva de Jesus.

"Yes, I have got a big name but I don't find my name strange. My dad wanted to honour the players he enjoyed watching and he was a big fan of Maradona and Socrates.

"I try to absorb the best of all of them into my game," said the 18-year-old.

The Daily Star Sunday says Chelsea and West Ham United are watching the striker this season.
