As Chelsea emerged 8-1 winners against Indonesia's All-Stars on Thursday, one player took this opportunity to impress manager Jose Mourinho with a scintillating performance.

 

Bertrand Traore who was born in Burkina Faso, dazzled on the pitch as he displayed his passing ability, vision and quality first touch. 

 

The teenager looked composed on the ball and even showed his goal-scoring ability with a 20-yard side footed finish into the top left corner of the Indonesian All Stars goal.

 

With Traore's versatility it would come to no surprise if he is able to break into the Chelsea first team in the next few years. Being able to play in the middle of the park and on the left wing, Traore can use his pace and vision to exploit defensive weaknesses.

 

What may come as a surprise to some is that Traore isn't officially a Chelsea player and has been given the pre-season tour as an opportunity for a trial. 

 

As the young player is only 17, Traore will not be able to sign a professional contract until he reaches the age of 18, allowing other clubs time to pursue his signature.

 

Being 17, the versatile midfielder will need to be granted a work permit before plying his trade professionally in England. 

 

With 8 appearances already for his home nation Burkina Faso, it's only a matter of time before this young talent is given the opportunity to light up the Premier League.
