Chelsea Chase ‘The New Theo Walcott’

According to the People, the Blues are preparing a £2 million offer for the teen who comes with a huge reputation despite his tender years.
Whilst Wolves will be desperate to keep hold of their hot prospect, they are unlikely to be able to resist an offer from Chelsea although it might take a record bid for a teenager to prise him away from Molineux.
Ismail’s searing pace and skill on the ball has earned him comparisons to Arsenal’s Theo Walcott. The young Gunner, who is four years older than the Wolves player, hit the headlines this week after scoring a hat-trick for England against Croatia.
Walcott, made his name at Southampton, becoming the youngest player even to pull on a Saints jersey when he appeared for the first team when he was just 16.
He spent two seasons at St Mary’s before Arsene Wenger snapped him up for an initial fee of £5 million, potentially rising to £12 million, a record at the time for a teenager.
The Wolves star, meanwhile, has been earning rave reviews for his performances in the Milk Cup which has brought him to the attention of scouts at Stamford Bridge.
The 15-year old was voted player of the tournament despite his side losing in the final of the competition. The Milk Cup is a prestigious under 16s tournament and clubs including Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Maccabi Tel Aviv all took part this year with Everton triumphing in the final 3-2.
