Ajax want Blues’ kid

Daily Mirror - - CRICKET - BY DAR­REN LEWIS

CHELSEA ris­ing star Adrian Akande has been tar­geted by Ajax and RB Leipzig.

Highly-rated Akande, 15, has cho­sen to play for Nige­ria over an Eng­land call-up for the pres­ti­gious Mon­taigu Tour­na­ment.

Akande will rep­re­sent the Golden Ea­glets at the Africa Un­der-17 Cup of Na­tions in Tan­za­nia.

Chelsea want to tie the two-footed at­tacker to a new con­tract. But Akande could fol­low the likes of Jadon San­cho and Reiss Nel­son in mov­ing abroad.
