Chelsea enter the battle to sign 17-year-old Polish playmaker

Chelsea and Man City are among the teams keeping an eye on Kacper Kozlowski, who is tipped to join a bigger team in the near future. Man City and Chelsea are already among the teams monitoring Poland international’s progress at Pogon, Szczecin.

Kacper does have a contract with the Ekstralasa club lasting until 2023, but they are indeed forecasted to cash in on the teenager and generate a sizable revenue that is often quite a rare thing in the Eredivisie.

A native of Koszalin, the 17-year-old attacker began his career in the youth department of Pogon before eventually being promoted to the team’s senior side in 2019. Kozlowski made his professional breakthrough last campaign, featuring in 20 league games, scoring one goal and registering three assists.

Although his numbers might not seem all too impressive, Kozlowski has raised a lot of eyebrows with technical skill and the ability to drift past opposition defenders. It has put a host of top teams across Europe on red alert, including the Blues, as they look to further improve their options in the creative department.

Kacper is unlikely to be considered as a first-team option for Chelsea. But the teenager certainly has what it takes to make his presence felt in the PL in the coming years.

Not to mention, the Blues have been quite welcoming to youth footballers in recent years, with players like Reece James, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and most recently, Trevoh Chalobah all making their breakthroughs within the past couple of campaigns.
