According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have missed out on the signing of Malik Mothersille to London rivals Chelsea.
It has been reported that Premier League club Chelsea have signed Mothersille from League Two outfit Leyton Orient.
“The 16-year-old will be part of the Academy scholars at Stamford Bridge from next season after impressing for the Under-18s at Brisbane Road,” adds the report in The Telegraph.
Good long-term prospect
Mothersille is a very good and talented young midfielder who has a bright future ahead of him.
Chelsea have one of the best youth set-ups in England, and the teenager will get the guidance and coaching he needs to develop into a top-quality player like he is expected to in the coming years.
