Chelsea set to snap up Canadian whizkid !!!

Chelsea have today been linked with Feyernood attacking midfielder Jonathan De Guzman according to the sun. Chelsea boss Avram Grant is apparently lining up an £8 million bid for the 20-year old in a bid to make him his first signing at the London club.

The player has been personally recommended to Roman Abramovich by the veteran Dutch coach Piet De Visser. De Visser was also the man to bring John Obi Mikel, Saloman Kalou and Alex to Chelsea's attention.

The player has stated on numerous occasions that he wouldn't turn down a move to the Premier League and Chelsea looks like his most likely destination. The player who has yet to decide wheter to represent Holland or Canada at international level is widely regarded as Dutch football's most promising prospect.

Although the player recently extended his contract at Feyernood until 2010, Chelsea are confident they can persuade the player to join in January. £8 million sounds like a lot of money for a 20 year old but I'm sure Chelsea boss Avram Grant knows what he's doing. It will be very interesting to see how De Guzman progresses in the next few years or so and I for one hope it's in the Premier League because he's obviously a promising talent.
