Chelsea, Liverpool chasing Chicago Fire sensation Jhon Duran

Chelsea and Liverpool are chasing Chicago Fire sensation Jhon Duran.

Duran, 18, has just made his breakthrough into Colombian national team after impressing in MLS with Chicago Fire.

Liverpool already have the teenager's compatriot Luis Diaz on the left side and Duran could be moved for quickly because of growing interest in him, says The Sun.

Duran only came into the Chicago side this season and clubs in Spain and Germany are on his trail.

His fee would not scare any of his admirers and may be around £10million plus extras.

Fire recently sold keeper Gabriel Slonina, also 18, to Chelsea for a similar price and would expect the same for their next discovery.

Todd Boehly's Blues spies are among those checking on Duran and with so many American owners in the Premier League, the Chicago cub is a name being discussed in high places.
