Argentina youngster Matias Godoy has revealed that Chelsea are keen on signing him, adding that interest from the West London club is “moving”.
The 17-year-old, who plays for Atletico Rafaela, has reportedly caught the eye of the Blues, who – according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schria – scouted him in a recent Under-17 World Cup clash, in which Argentina are currently competing.
The journalist adds that Chelsea‘s interest is serious, the club having submitted a £3m bid to bring him into their youth setup.
However, it is claimed that the Blues face competition from across Europe, with AC Milan and Inter Milan both also keen on Godoy.
Speaking to TyC Sports, the youngster spoke out about the transfer talk while insisting that he is only focused on his work with Atletico Rafaela and the Argentina youth sides.
“The fact that Chelsea is following me is a little moving and I take it in the best way possible but must continue to work,” he said.
“I am full of pride. Me and my family have made a very big sacrifice to get here. Already being in the national team is a great pride for me.”
Chelsea went into the international break having picked up their sixth Premier League win in a row at the weekend with a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
