Chelsea have reportedly made their first attempts to hijack Tottenham’s attempts of signing highly-rated midfielder Charlie Allen.

According to Football Insider, the Blues have asked the teenager’s club, Linfield, if they can take the midfielder on trial at Cobham.

Allen, 15, has already undergone a trial with Spurs and even discussed terms ahead of a move, so Chelsea’s interest comes as a major surprise.

The attacking midfielder, who is regarded as one of Northern Ireland’s brightest prospects, has also spent time with Premier League champions Manchester City over a possible switch.

Linfield are resigned to losing their star asset, who made history by becoming the club’s youngest ever first-team debutant at the end of last season.

Allen turns 16 in November, and with Chelsea having a proud tradition of turning their youngsters into first-team stars, as shown by Frank Lampard so far this season, the Northern Irishman could be keen on a move to Stamford Bridge if offered terms.

Will Chelsea land Allen ahead of Spurs and City?
