Albania’s 17-year-old midfield sensation Melvin Koliqi dreams of playing for Chelsea in the Premier League.
Melvin Koliqi dreams of playing in the Premier League for Chelsea. The 17-year-old sensation has recently made his desire to play for the London club public. While the teenager hasn’t made it to IFK Göteborg’s first team, he has had an impressive rise and he surely has the potential to be a special player.
Kloiqi has been at Göteborg since his childhood days, he has come up the ranks at some pace. They might not have promoted him to their first team yet but the teenager is currently with their senior team for their pre-season tour to Portugal.
If things go according to plan, he could soon make it to their first team. While on tour in Portugal, Koliqi had the opportunity to speak with the Swedish newspaper Alingsas Tidning where he talked about his desire and his long-term plans.
The Albanian midfielder said to Alingsas Tidning via SportWitness: “I dream of playing in the Premier League with Chelsea, it’s my favourite team.”
The 17-year-old midfield sensation is considered to be a huge prospect for the future. He might not have had that big a say in their 7-1 defeat to Portuguese side CD Mafra earlier this week, but Koliqi has what it takes to be playing at the very top level.
During the interview, he talked about his desire to play in the English top flight and his love for the Blues. The teenager picked up an injury in their last outing but is expected to be back in time and could make his first team debut in the near future.
While Koliqi’s immediate goal is to make it to the Swedish club’s first team, his long-term dream is to sign for Chelsea. The 17-year-old has the talent but he will have to prove his worth over the next months. While the Blues haven’t been linked with him yet, they do prefer signing young players with huge potential.
If the Göteborg midfielder can go from strength to strength from here on, he might attract attention from Chelsea as well as other top clubs from across Europe.
