Alexander Isak: Subject of Chelsea bid?

Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United are both keeping a close eye on 17-year-old AIK Solna striking sensation Alexander Isak.

According to The Sun, scouts from both clubs travelled to watch the youngster dubbed ‘the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ last weekend.

However, they were not the only ones as a whopping 88 other talent-spotters from other teams were also in attendance – reportedly an Allsvenskan record.

Isak was unable to get on the scoresheet in AIK Solna’s 1-0 defeat to IFK Goteburg, but has scored an impressive 10 goals in 22 appearances so far this season.

Isak has already broken into Sweden’s U21 set-up and is close to earning his first international cap with the senior squad.
