Chelsea challenge Bundesliga duo for 'new Pogba' Saint-Etienne midfielder Gourna-Douath

Saint-Etienne midfielder Lucas Gourna-Douath is attracting interest from Chelsea.

RMC says Chelsea have asked for information on 17 year-old Gourna-Douath, who has drawn comparisons with Man Utd's Paul Pogba.

The France Under-17s captain spent his Under-14s season playing for US Torcy, a club that Paul Pogba also represented as a youngster.

Chelsea are one of three European clubs to have asked for more information with Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen the other two.

All three are interested in sealing a permanent move for the 17-year-old before his value increases further.

Italian side Atalanta who are known for developing talented young players are trying to bring him to Seria A but the €10m they are offering is not enough for the Ligue 1 side.
