Meet The Arsenal Targeted 17-Year-Old Belgian Midfielder Chelsea Want In Summer

The Mail report that Chelsea are monitoring Anderlecht youngsters Youri Tielemans (17) and Leander Dendoncker (19). Tielemans, who plays in central midfield, is very highly rated and already a regular in the Anderlecht first team, making his Champions League debut when he was 16 and was the youngest Belgian ever to do so. Dendocncker is more of a defensive player who can operate in both midfield and central defence.

Chelsea have good links in Belgium thanks to their previous deal for Romelu Lukaku, and their scout Tony White was reputedly watching the two Anderlecht youngsters at the weekend.

Youri Tielemans has been a targeted by Arsenal too, however Chelsea's financial superiority may prove too much for the Gunners. Arsene Wenger was full of praise for Anderlecht's youth set-up and how they develop young players, so many top clubs have now turned attentions to the Belgian side and their promising 'kids'.

Here's some footage of Youri Tielemans in action…
