According to a report in the British tabloid The Daily Mail, Chelsea are planning to persuade Manchester United youngster Kenji Gorre to swap Old Trafford for Stamford Bridge.
Apparently, the Blues' sporting director Frank Arnesen is hoping to convince the 15-year-old, who is believed to be highly rated by the Red Devils, to join the west London club.
It is thought that Chelsea are beginning to focus more attention on their youth academy having failed to produce anywhere near the same number of home-grown talents as the European Champions in recent years.
Kenji, who has dual nationality because his father, current Southampton assistant manager Dean Gorre, is a Dutch citizen, has recently won a place in the England youth teams.
