Chelsea are planning a bid for Steaua Bucharest winger Florinel Coman, according to reports.

Technical director Micheal Emenalo was reportedly in Romania last week to watch the youngster in action.

Coman a winger by trade is one of Europe’s most talented teenager and has been praised not only for his talents but also his versatility.

 The 19 year old is comfortable playing anywhere across the front three and has featured five times for Romania U21.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are keeping tabs on the forward and have sent top officials to watch him in action.

Chelsea would have to spend big if they want to sign Coman as Bucharest owner Gigi Becali has inserted an £88m release clause in the youngster’s contract.

Becali says he rates the winger as high as Kylian Mbappe who moved to PSG for a deal worth more than £150m.

Chelsea are yet to firm up their interest but it is expected that we’ll look to negotiate a lower fee for the forward if we decide to make a move for him.

Spending £88m on a player who isn’t tested in any of Europe’s big leagues won’t make sense and no club official in his right thinking sense would pay that much.
