Chelsea have sent scouts to watch 19-year-old striker Musa Barrow of Atalanta, according to Football Italia.

The youngster has an extraordinary record in Primavera since graduating from the Oribici youth academy, scoring 23 goals in just 18 games.

With his recent form of two goals and two assists in his last four Serie A outings, the Gambian prospect is already attracting interest from an array of top clubs.

Along with Chelsea, Gazzamercato claims that the Atalanta man has already been targeted by Inter, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund.




Scouts from Stamford Bridge will be at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday as Barrow’s Atalanta take on Lazio.

Roman Abramovich will have to make a bid of around €25-30m to prise him away from the Italian side, the sort of fee the Russian is not usually shy of paying.

There is no surprise that the West London club are in the market for another striker, as £60 million man Alvaro Morata has not been as reliable as they first hoped.

JOE GOMEZ RULED OUT OF TRIP TO CHELSEA

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that defender Joe Gomez will miss the clash with Chelsea on Sunday, but he expects the defender to be available for the Champions League final and possibly the last game of the season against Brighton.

Gomez picked up a knock in the recent home draw to Stoke City, one that kept him at home whilst Liverpool travelled to face AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final.

It seems like the Reds are not 100% sure of Gomez’s issue but Klopp wass adamant he will be back in time to face Real Madrid.

Joe is still waiting for final assessment so we can really figure out what it is exactly. We will know about it in a few days probably, but he is not available for Chelsea.

Gomez’s injury means that Trent Alexander-Arnold is likely to play at right-back again at Stamford Bridge, although if Klopp feels that the teenager needs a rest, he does have Nathaniel Clyne available for selection.
