Chelsea interested in signing Ali Akman

Premier League giants Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing teenage striker Ali Akman from Bursaspor this month, a report from The Mail claims.
The 18-year-old has enjoyed an impressive second season with the Turkish outfit and he has bagged nine goals and four assists from 17 appearances in all competitions.
