Chelsea and Liverpool keeping tabs on Kuki

Football News

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are hot on the trail of Malaga teen sensation Jose Luis Zalazar, the Spanish striker known in his homeland simply as 'Kuki'.

The Daily Mail reports that the 16-year-old starlet has attracted widespread interest from a host of top European suitors after rising to prominence at U17 youth international level.

Kuki has already featured for the Malaga first-team in a series of friendlies, but is still awaiting his competitive debut at senior level for Javi Gracia's side.

After signing his first professional contract at La Rosaleda Stadium last summer, the youngster's buyout clause currently stands at just £4.4 million. However, that fee will double as soon as Kuki makes his maiden appearance in the team.

The left-footed striker - who can play right across the front line - has been monitored by Liverpool scouts for over a year, so Brendan Rodgers is familiar with the potential the emerging young player possesses, as he weighs up an attempt to lure him to Anfield.

Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini is perhaps best placed to secure the talented teenager's signature, though, when you consider the links that the Chilean has with the club he previously coached prior to moving to the Etihad Stadium.

However, Jose Mourinho is almost certainly going to rival both of the other Premier League suitors as the Blues continue their forward-thinking recruitment drive, which involves securing the services of burgeoning stars of the future by getting them signed on at Stamford Bridge.

Paulo Dybala will leave Palermo

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed that striker Paulo Dybala will be on the move in the summer.

The 21-year-old has been in superb form and has managed 12 goals in 27 games this term, and that has attracted the interest of a host of top clubs - including Chelsea - from across Europe.

Kevin de Bruyne to Old Trafford?

Manchester United are in pole position to complete the capture of Chelsea reject Kevin de Bruyne this summer despite facing competition from a host of other European clubs.

Interest in the VfL Wolfsburg winger is high following an incredible turnaround in form since his move from Stamford Bridge to the Bundesliga, and Jose Mourinho has even been credited with an interest in the player's signature.

Chelsea fans: Do you think the club made a mistake cashing in on Kevin de Bruyne? How much would you be prepared to pay to bring him back to Stamford Bridge? Have your say below!
