Highly rated FC Copenhagen striker Kenneth Zohore has emerged as a summer transfer target for Chelsea according to talkSPORT.

After a string of cameo performances for the Danish Superliga leaders, Zohore has attracted the attention of a number of potential suitors.

Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti has been keeping tabs on a player who made a substitute appearance at Stamford Bridge in this season's Champions League.

Chelsea may also look to capitalise on existing club ties to complete a deal for Zohore – who is the son of Didier Drogba's cousin.


Having worked his way up through the youth ranks in Denmark, Copenhagen are desperate not to lose Zohore so soon after making his breakthrough into the first team.

But the 19-year-old starlet has caught the eye of a number of top clubs around Europe, with Serie A giants AC Milan also linked with a summer approach for his services.

Sources in the San Siro are aware of Chelsea's interest and are said to be keen to move quickly to strike a deal before Ancelotti steps up his interest when the transfer window reopens in June.

With Blues owner Roman Abramovich ordering a Stamford Bridge firesale this summer, in order to freshen up an ageing Chelsea squad.

Zohore would tick all the boxes for Chelsea's scouting network as they continue their pursuit of the brightest up-and-coming talent that Europe has to offer.
