Independiente keeper Assman surprised by Chelsea link

Independiente goalkeeper Fabian Assman has admitted he is surprised that Chelsea have shown an interest in him.

The 23-year old Argentine shot-stopper is aware of interest from European clubs but is more surprised that the Blues are reportedly preparing to launch a bid for him.

"I was surprised to see their [Chelsea] scouts, that came to watch my game against Tigre," Assman told Info Bae.

"Last year several European clubs already observed me.

"But I keep my feet on the ground. At the moment I am focused on Independiente."
