Chelsea are one of the European clubs tracking young Inter Milan striker Andrea Pinamonti, with The Mirror stating that the Blues are readying an approach for the teenage starlet.
The rising star is still only 17 but is adjudged as one of the brightest prospects at the Serie A club and in the Italian national game.

Pinamonti is already representing the Azzurri at under-19’s level and has impressed in the Inter youth ranks.
The report suggests that Antonio Conte knows the attacker well given his previous role as Italy head coach and that the centre forward is a player that he has been keeping an eye on.
Pinamonti is yet to sign his first professional contract at the Milanese contract and as such the Serie A club are believed to have started negotiations over a deal for him.
The report suggests that Chelsea are joined in the hunt for the teenager by Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen and that a potential £400,000 fee would be demanded as compensation.
