Daily Mail is reporting that Chelsea are closely monitoring the progress of Wolfsburg midfielder Julian Brandt.
While Jose Mourinho and his men are concerned with recovering from a poor start of the season, club officials are already thinking about the future.
Chelsea scouts have been alerted of the potential of German midfielder Julian Brandt, who has been putting in some very good showings for Germany youth sides.
The Blues are determined to be in pole position to sign the youngster when other European sides come knocking, and they could soon be making their interest concrete.
The left-sided midfielder has been in scintillating form this term, managing three goals and five assists in five matches for Wolfsburg Under-19 side.
Meanwhile, his suitors Chelsea will be in Premier League action later today when they play host to Fulham, hoping to end a four-match winless run. In spite of the poor run of form, the Blues are 7/25 favourites to defeat their local rivals.
