Chelsea ahead of Serie A trio for Brondby superkid Mads Bayer

Chelsea are lining up a raid on Denmark's youth market.

The Mirror says the Blues are interested in Brondby ace Mads Bayer.

The 15-year-old is still playing in the youth team, but has represented Denmark at under-17 level.

Bayer is still too young to sign professional terms yet, and is in a similar situation to that of Jude Bellingham last year.

He is still under a schoolboy contract at Brondby, which lasts until 2023.

But Brondby seem to have little chance of keeping him for too much longer, as he's already attracted attention from Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Chelsea.

The Blues are eager to sign him up and bring him into the youth setup.

However, they face difficulties in doing so, as FIFA guidelines would currently prohibit the deal.
