Rapid Vienna midfielder Melih Ibrahimoglu tracked by Chelsea, Roma

Rapid Vienna midfielder Melih Ibrahimoglu is being tracked by Chelsea.

Calciomercato.com says the Blues are vying with Italian sides Roma and Sampdoria for the 19-year-old, who is said to possess excellent vision and technical ability on the ball.

Ibrahimoglu has shined for the Rapid Vienna second team this season with a string of fine displays, scoring four goals in 11 matches in the Austrian Regional League.

The playmaker has also represented Austria at Under-20 level and it is believed he could be available for a cut-price fee, with his current deal expiring in the summer of 2021.

Stamford Bridge chiefs believe they could strike a deal for the talented young midfielder for a fee in the region of £3million.
