Five young guns ready to battle the established star at Chelsea.
If there is one thing Chelsea are not famous for it’s promoting their young talent. The players are there, but the nature of the club has changed so that it is now harder than ever for young players to break through ahead of the expensive stars blocking their path. The talent is there, and below we have highlighted the best five that stand the best chance of making it.
5. Nathan Ake
The young Dutchman has been on the periphery of the squad for some time now, and has even managed to get on a few times in both the domestic campaign as well as the club’s European adventures. The club must rate him highly, as he has yet to be sent on loan to feeder club Vitesse Arnhem, and last summer put pen to paper on a new five-year contract. With David Luis out the way, his path to the first team may be a little clearer now.
