The youngster has been touted as next big thing. All the top clubs including Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund have scouted him.

Dongen is a Left winger who can also play as Centre forward. Dongen has featured for Netherlands U-16 thrice and also has a goal to his credit.

Mike McGrath, journalist for The Daily Telegraph, also confirmed Chelsea’s interest in the forward.  The sixteen-year-old youth player of Ajax is known as a great talent and his qualities have not gone unnoticed in England.

Van Axel Dongen could still sign a contract with Ajax, but has not yet reached an agreement with the Amsterdam club with Chelsea closely monitoring the situation.

The Blues have already had an extravagant summer of spending, bringing six new signings to the club. This is likely be an investment for the future.
