Chelsea thinking on Leeds’ wonderkid Cook

Chelsea have reportedly joined the chase to sign Leeds United midfielder Lewis Cook, according to The Mail.

The teenage midfielder has emerged as one of the most promising prospects in Britain despite Leeds are struggling in the Championship.

It is understood the Blues have scouted the brilliant teenager this season, with Bournemouth and Manchester United also interested in him given that his contract will expire in 2017.

Cook can clearly play at the top level and for this reason Chelsea are likely to give Cook extra consideration.

A club source said: “Lewis knows he will have to leave Leeds to fulfil his ambitions.

“All the big clubs have been keeping close tabs on him and want him, so he will have his pick of the best and has a big decision to make.”

“He’s wonderful talent and Leeds have no chance of keeping him at Elland Road. It’s just a matter of when, not if, he leaves and it should be quite a mad scramble this summer.”
