West Ham United are hopeful of signing Adrian Akande.
The teenage attacker has been linked with a move to the London Stadium club.
The Nigeria under-17 international has been with the Blues for the past four years.
He is not set to sign a scholarship deal with the club, which would make him free to move to another team.
Akande recently had a trial with West Ham, who would be hoping to wrap up his signing in the coming weeks.
