Chelsea jump into battle for Stoke superkid Mo Sankoh

Chelsea are eyeing Stoke City prospect Mo Sankoh.

The Stoke Sentinel says Chelsea are the latest club to be linked with a move for out-of-contract striker Mo Sankoh.

Sankoh, 16, has been offered fresh terms by Stoke but is expected to leave the club this summer as interest in him continues to grow.

The goalscorer recently saw his name associated with Chelsea, several months after he bagged a brace against the Blues in Stoke's under-18s 2-1 Premier League Cup semi-final win.

It is believed Sankoh has attracted interest from clubs across Europe, including Chelsea on that list of prospective suitors.

If Chelsea were to sign the striker, they would need to agree a compensation package with the Potters.

Any fee would be based on future first-team appearances and achievements at his new club.
