One of Chelsea’s most talented youth players is getting serious interest from abroad, but will turn down all offers in the interest of signing a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
Tino Anjorin is already getting Blues fans seriously excited with his youth team performances and his cameos for Frank Lampard’s first team, but there has been a bit of unease around his situation, given how close his contract is to ending.
Sky Sports today report on interest from a slew of top teams: Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal. But they conclude that despite all that, the 18 year old has his heart set on staying at his boyhood club, and that a new deal is just a formality.
The fact that he’s starting to make an impact under Lampard will help too – he got his first team debut back in September, and then made his Premier League bow against Everton, in the final game before the coronavirus crisis halted football.
