Report: Chelsea scouting 15-year-old Vitesse wonderkid Thomas Buitink

Vitesse

Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on him.

Chelsea have been well known recently for their links with Vitesse Arnhem. The club have sent out a long list of players on loan to the club in recent times and also keep any eye on their young talents, hoping to pick up the odd gem such as Marco van Ginkel.

Now they are said to be keen on another talented Dutch lad at the Arnhem club.

Chelsea are reported by V-Bal in Holland to be keeping tabs on 15-year-old striker Thomas Buitink.

Buitink has been training with the Vitesse first-team alongside young Chelsea loanees such as Dom Solanke, Izzy Brown and Nathan in recent times. Now Chelsea have been sending officials to keep an eye on the player who they see as a potential star of the future.

The report goes on to claim that Chelsea are not alone. Premier League rivals Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal have also had scouts checking out Buitink when possible.

The teenager is a Dutch youth international who has scored over 100 goals in the Vitesse youth system and Chelsea will hope their links with the Dutch club will give them dibs on the wonderkid.
