The Mirror claims Chelsea are eyeing a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Alexander Isak despite their two window transfer ban.

The 19-year-old is currently on loan at Eredevisie club Willem II and Blues scouts watched him in last week’s clash with Ajax in Tilburg.

Isak became the first Eredivisie player to do so since Hans Venneker all the way back in 1964/65 and the first player to score in seven consecutive league matches since Tottenham’s Vincent Janssen during his time at AZ Alkmaar. Let’s hope this isn’t a bad omen for Isak’s potential Premier League career.

Isak’s 6ft 3in frame and quick feet have seen the forward compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Stockholm-born forward was being watched a host of clubs at first club AIK before Dortmund paid £14million for him in January 2017.

Isak’s opportunities in Germany were limited and he was loaned to Williem II in the new year.

Since arriving from Dortmund in January after failing to make a Bundesliga appearance this season, Isak has played in 13 out of a possible 13 matches in all competitions for Willem. In this time, the young Swedish international has scored an astonishing 13 goals, assisting four.
