Report: Chelsea and Liverpool chasing 15-year-old AC Milan talent Raoul Bellanova

The Italian under-17 international is highly rated in Italy.

Reports in Italy are suggesting that both Chelsea and Liverpool are keen on the signature of a talented 15-year-old Italian.

Calcio Mercato is reporting in an exclusive that both Chelsea and Liverpool have been keeping tabs on the AC Milan talent Raoul Bellanova.

The schoolboy is already an established member of the AC Milan and Italy under-17 sides and is clearly a hot prospect considering the teams that are chasing his signature.

The same report also claims that Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg are keen on the wonderkid.

Chelsea snap up plenty of talented young players from across the continent and the majority of them often end up going out on loan around the continent. So they would certainly be in the market for such a talent.

Liverpool on the other hand tend to delve into the young market in Spain or on a domestic front more often then not, so a switch for an Italian talent might come as something of a shock for the club.

This transfer story will certainly need to be kept tabs on over the coming months as Chelsea and Liverpool could be bringing in a top talent.
