Chelsea are keen on bringing German playmaker Max Meyer to Stamford Bridge, according to Schalke's sporting director.
The 18-year-old playmaker has been in fine form for Bundesliga side Schalke this season, scoring three goals in 12 games for Jens Keller's side.
Meyer's impressive start to the season has reportedly alerted the attention of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who is said to be keeping tabs on the attacking midfielder's progression.
The Portuguese tactician's side played Schalke in the Champions League last week and Meyer is said to have impressed Mourinho - despite the teenager only making a 23-minute cameo appearance.
Meyer is said to be 'really happy' at Schalke, however he may have no choice but to move to Stamford Bridge if Chelsea meet his £15million release clause.
Schalke sporting director Horst Heldt said on speculation linking Meyer with a move to the Premier League.
"There is no official offer from Chelsea," the Schalke chief told Kicker.
"But I have heard of the interest."
Meyer would join fellow Germans Andre Schurrle and Marko Marin, who is currently on loan at Sevilla, at Stamford Bridge - if he was to complete a switch to Chelsea in January or during next summer's transfer window.
