Andrija Zivkovic has been linked with the likes of Benfica and Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho reported to have watched the winger in action last summer.

Partizan Belgrade's youngest ever captain, Andrija Zivkovic, looks set for a bright future in the game and his next step could yet be a move to Premier League champions Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho watched the 18-year-old in action last summer, according to The Guardian, and after another season in which he has impressed for Partizan, a big move could be imminent.

Zivkovic certainly looks ready for a step up after a season in which he scored seven goals in 34 appearances for his Serbian employers.

Picked for the national side competing at the FIFA under-20 World Cup in New Zealand, the midfielder has been busy showcasing just why he is hot property on the continent.

Already through to the knockout phase of the tournament as group winners, following two wins and a defeat from their three games, Zivkovic has been instrumental in that progress.

The undoubted highlight for the 18-year-old came against Mexico, with the midfielder netting a fine free-kick to seal a 2-0 win over El Tri.

A goal that is sure to get the attention of Mourinho and many more top-flight managers besides, the future looks bright for Zivkovic.

The only question is whether it's a future that includes a move to Chelsea.
