Bursaspor striker Ali Akman interesting Arsenal and Chelsea

Bursaspor striker Ali Akman is interesting Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea and Arsenal are among the Premier League sides tracking Turkey U21 international striker Akman.

The talented 18-year-old is playing for Bursaspor's first team and has caught the attention of Europe's elite with nine goals in 16 games already this season.

Indeed, Red Bull Salzburg and Galatasaray both tried to strike a deal for the teenager in December.

Akman burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old making his debut before establishing himself as a key component of what is a very young Bursaspor squad.

He first grabbed the headlines with a spectacular goal from the halfway line playing for Turkey U17s in a friendly against Belarus in August 2018 which Turkey went on to win 2-0.

He has since continued to impress with his pace and skills and is now looking at taking his career to the next level.
