Chelsea and Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing 18-year-old Gambian striker Adama Bojang.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, Chelsea and Crystal Palace are keeping tabs on Adama Bojang. The two clubs will face competition from London rivals Tottenham Hotspur for the 18-year-old African attacking sensation.
Adama Bojang is highly rated around Europe, and he has a big future ahead of him. The talented young striker has been likened to Victor Osimhen, because of the similarity in playing styles. He was linked with Tottenham recently.
Osimhen has been one of the best attackers in the world this season, and he has been linked with a move to Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, recently. It will be interesting to see if Bojang can secure a move to the Premier League as well.
The 18-year-old has the potential to develop into a top-class goalscorer. It is no secret that Chelsea and Crystal Palace will have to add attacking depth to their side. The Blues have added a lot of creativity to their side over the last couple of windows. But they need to bring in someone who can put the ball in the back of the net consistently.

While Bojang is not ready to lead the line at Stamford Bridge just yet, he could prove to be a quality long-term investment. The 18-year-old African attacking sensation could be a squad player for Chelsea now and develop into a regular starter for them in future.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will have to add more quality in the final third as well, and the 18-year-old would be a superb acquisition. The Eagles have a number of quality young players at their disposal, and Bojang would add to the talent pool at the club.
Meanwhile, the 18-year-old striker is reportedly valued at £650,000. With that in mind, the Premier League clubs should have no problems investing that kind of money in him. The move could look like a massive bargain in the long run if the striker manages to fulfil his potential.
However, his suitors will struggle to secure a work permit for him, and they might need to loan him out immediately after signing the player. Bojang currently plays for Steve Biko FC, and a move to England would be a major step up in his career. He will feel that playing in England will accelerate his development and help him grow as a footballer.
