De Limburger is reporting that MVV Maastricht youngster Xavier Mbuyamba could be on his way to Premier League giants Chelsea.

The 17-year-old made his first team debut with MVV back in December and has totalled eleven appearances so far in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie.

However, Mbuyamba is still on an amateur contract and can move elsewhere for free. MVV have offered the youngster a long-term deal but Chelsea are now hoping to convince him to join the English club.

Mbuyamba will train in London this week with Chelsea and MVV boss Ron Elson isn’t confident about keeping the centre-back. He told De Limburger, “MVV cannot, of course, compete with a top club like Chelsea.”
