Chelsea have won the race to sign highly-rated winger Miro Muheim, who will link up with the west London club's academy from the start of next season.
According to the Sunday People, the Switzerland U16 international was being coveted by a number of top European clubs in Italy and Germany, but has opted for a switch to the Premier League.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is overseeing a changing of the guard at Stamford Bridge, with more emphasis set to be placed on youth development as a number of Chelsea's leading stars approach the end of their respective careers.
Last week John Terry penned a one-year contract extension, but the club is yet to offer new deals to the likes of Frank Lampard or Ashley Cole, who could leave Chelsea on free transfers this summer.
Muheim's arrival is yet more evidence of Chelsea's change in recruitment policy, securing the signature of an up-and-coming talent, in the hope that he will flourish into a star in the future.
Previously contracted to FC Zurich, the teenager has been making waves in his homeland and is regarded as the best player in his age group. If he continues developing at his current rate, then it won't be long before he's knocking on the first-team door at Stamford Bridge.
