Chelsea are raiding cash-strapped Derby County.
The Mirror says Chelsea are on the verge of signing Derby wonderkid Dylan Williams, who has impressed under Wayne Rooney in the first-team this season.
The 18-year-old has made six first-team appearances for the Rams during the current 2021-22 season, playing in a number of positions in Rooney’s side.
Derby have reportedly agreed a fee with Chelsea ahead of a move to Stamford Bridge this January, although initially he will go into the club’s academy side rather than straight into Thomas Tuchel’s first-team.
Williams could be one of the next stars to emerge from Chelsea’s impressive academy in years to come after Rooney, instead of trying to keep hold of the youngster, allowed him to leave and grasp the opportunity.
