Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu impressed again in his third start of the season with the first team in the Carabao Cup.

The Welsh kid held the midfield in tonight’s clash against Bournemouth and shared his satisfaction, also for reaching the competition semifinals, after the final whistle:

“I am really satisfied of my game, I tried to do my football,” Ampadu said on tv.

“I am obviously happy Conte trusted me again, I had to repay him.

Gary Cahill helped me a lot during the game, but he was not the only one, and his help was really important.

“It was a great journey until the semifinals, I didn’t expect my involvement in the first team so soon.

“All my mates teach me something new every day, it’s something special for me.

“Of course I hope to play the final.”

“They deserve their chance and I am very happy. It was the answer I was waiting for.”

Ampadu is the first class 2000 to play for Chelsea first team, breaking a record for the club.

Chelsea have joined Paris Saint Germain, Inter and Manchester United in the race for Serie A golden boy Pietro Pellegri.

The Genoa forward, only 16, is one of the new Serie A sensations, having scored already 3 goals in only 7 games with the first team ( and not always as a starter).

Genoa outlet Il Secolo XIX, claims the competition has got even stiffer as PSG have entered the race for Pellegri in the last days.

The French champions are reportedly scouting the Italian and they are preparing to swoop, even if Inter was ready to place a bid for him and another Genoa’s young talent, Eddy Salcedo ( who turned 16 last week).

Genoa, however, are hoping that Pellegri will opt to stay for at least two more years at the Rossoblu.
