Another ‘Lukaku’ on Chelsea’s Radar
Anderlecht striker Aaron Iseka, a 17-year-old starlet who is already making waves in the Belgian Pro League is being scouted by Chelsea.
According to the Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho is considering an attempt to lure the youngster from Brussels to Stamford Bridge with a lucrative offer, just like they did with Romelu Lukaku four years ago when they paid around £10 million for him.
A very productive loan system at Chelsea ensures that every player has a proper playing time and if the player impresses, he is given a chance in the first team, as in the case of Thibaut Courtois. Loan spells at West Bromwich Albion and Everton failed to convince Mourinho that Lukaku was worth keeping, so he was allowed to make his Goodison Park switch permanent at the end of 2013/14 season.
It will be interesting to see if Iseka’s decision to switch clubs at such a young age will be influenced by Lukaku’s not-so-good stint at such a big club. With Diego Costa as the clear number 1 choice, Iseka would have to do something extremely exemplary if he has to even make to the bench at Chelsea. Given the fact that, even Loic Remy has had very limited first team appearances.
Iseka is still in the initial stage of his development and would benefit from following his elder sibling’s (Michy Batshuayi) example by committing to Anderlecht, for the foreseeable future and to not switch clubs as he would be limiting his game time which, at his age is the most important thing!
